A list of all existing First Responders is required. Potential for SFRS retained fire fighters taking on a First Responder role should be established as soon as possible.
The following actions have been reported by Evan Beswick from NHS Highland as taking place over the past two months:
SAS First Responder road shows scheduled for Skye on 23 and 24 August 2018.
SFRS invited to Raasay road show 24 August 2018 to discuss potential for retained fire fighter involvement in first responder roles.
Stocktake of current CFR schemes requested from SAS.
Discussion held between NHS Skye SOS and NHSH lead to identify potential workstream members.
SAS are also currently mapping locations of Defibrillators into their Command & Control system so that in the event of a Cardiac Arrest it will flag up if there is a Public Access Defibrillators nearby that could be utilised until either First Responders or an ambulance arrives on scene.
