We received this message earlier on from a follower – if you can help, then please leave a comment in the comments section below:
“Please post anonymously.
“I am already a proud member of staff of the thin blue line.
“I am seriously considering (when recruiting) becoming a community 1st responder in my local area in Kent.
“I know I will be trained by St Johns and know I have to use my own car.
“I have 12+ yrs experience in 1st aid so all the extras I get will just be a bonus / refresher for me. I am NOT saying I know it all, far from it, I’m just confident in the area.
“A couple of questions if I may:
“1. What are your perceptions of community responders?
“2. What is expected of them as a role and when ambulance drivers (sorry paramedics) arrive on scene what do you expect from them?
“3. Watching inside the ambulance last night they are all wearing gopros. Is that the norm and can 1st responders wear their own or is that just for TV ?

Before you go...
We need your help. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
And remember, if you have a service, product or job vacancy that you would like to promote to our large readership, then you can buy advertising space in our articles.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
Please help us to continue to highlight the life-saving work of the emergency services, NHS and armed forces by becoming a supporter.
