LISTEN AGAIN | News In Focus SE01EP44 Mansfield Community First Responders

You can now listen again to this week’s News In Focus, which takes an in-depth look at the Mansfield Community First Responders, one of the unseen emergency services, who deal with 999 calls and attending community events.

In a packed show, Craig Priest speaks to members of the Responders to hear their views on why the responders is vital for the area – Simon Parry, the group coordinator for Mansfield said “We’ve coming up to 30 members now, we’re quite wide spread throughout the Mansfield and surrounding area – we’re on call various times so people can get to things. Behind the scenes we’ve all got other roles within the scheme, we all go out at teach the CPR and we try and do as much as we can that benefits the community really”

The responders are all volunteers who fit in being on the front line with their general 9-5 jobs and family life, and as well as attending 999 calls, the group attend a number of local events to help promote the importance of CPR, first aid skills and more.

Also on this week’s show, Helen Burke reports on a growth of hoax 999 calls which has cost the tax payers thousands, whilst Matt Freeman swaps the studio for the front line – joining the responders on shift to see first-hand, just how vital the service is.

An extended version of the show can be heard below
