Community First Responders

Community First Responders are trained volunteers who respond to certain types of emergency calls in their local area.

They help save lives by responding quickly to casualties, while the ambulance is on its way.

St John Scotland supports a number of Community First Responder groups across Angus – in Montrose, Brechin, Carnoustie, Kirriemuir, Arbroath and Forfar.


If you are interested in volunteering as a Community First Responder, please contact us to find out if we have any current vacancies.
