Ilkley Community First Responders

Ilkley Community First Responders are a volunteer group that respond to certain emergency calls in their local community, providing vital care to all those living in or passing through Ilkley, until an ambulance crew arrives.

We are called to patients who may be in a state of collapse, or have other potentially life threatening conditions. Including cardiac arrest, chest pains and breathing difficulties.

As an example of how time-critical emergency intervention can be, the chance of survival of a patient in cardiac arrest if defibrillated immediately is 85%. The odds decrease by 10% for every minute that passes with no treatment.
