East Bergholt Heartwatch Community First Responders

We are trained in resuscitation techniques and carry a comprehensive medical kit which includes oxygen and Automatic External Defibrilator (AED). An AED monitors a patient in cardiac arrest and if necessary can deliver a controlled electric shock to restart the heart. This together with basic life support techniques including chest compressions and rescue breaths can dramatically improve the patients chances of survival during those vital minutes before the Ambulance arrives. Interested in joining the East Bergholt team? Please get in touch with our team coordinator Carol Moss.

We are a local group of volunteers trained by the ambulance service to respond to life-threatening emergencies in the East Bergholt area. 
We are controlled and dispatched by the ambulance control centres in Norwich and Chelmsford.
