First re­spon­ders re­turn

Ayrshire Post - - Troon News -

Troon First Re­spon­ders are back on the road.

There was a pe­riod when the Scot­tish Am­bu­lance Ser­vice was not alert­ing the re­spon­ders to emer­gen­cies af­ter a shift in pol­icy.

Now the vol­un­teers who aim to get to doors first are back on the job.

Am­bu­lance con­trol are now us­ing a ra­dio pager to dis­patch the TFR car and Hal­fords in Irvine have given them a new sat nav.

First Re­spon­der chair­man Ian John­son said: “The sat nav has up- to- date map­ping and voice recog­ni­tion pro­gram­ming of ad­dresses so will be a huge ben­e­fit.” The group aim to run a CPR train­ing day at Ivy Cot­tage.

On the road Ian John­son, Jim Young and Jill Burns
