Rother Responders is a charity, established in 2012, with the following objects:
- To relieve sickness and preserve health among persons in the Rother and surrounding areas by the provision of trained volunteer Community First Responders to attend medical emergencies, as directed by South East Coast Ambulance Service
- To increase the survival rate of out of hospital cardiac arrests through placement and maintenance of Public Access Defibrillators in the Rother area
- To advance education for the public benefit in the subject of first aid, in particular but not exclusively, by offering training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and defibrillation
This website covers both our charitable activities and the work of our team of volunteer Community First Responders, who have been trained to respond to emergency calls through the 999 system in conjunction with South East Coast Ambulance Service. We cover areas including Camber, Rye, Iden, Winchelsea, Northiam, Peasmarsh and Icklesham.
