The team have also attended call-outs when requested by ambulance control to
other nearby villages, including Bole, West Burton, North & South Wheatley, Sturton le Steeple and North Leverton in North Nottinghamshire, plus other areas including Haxey, Graiselound, Westwoodside, Gunthorpe, Owston Ferry and Epworth in the Isle of Axhole in North Lincolnshire.
Responders aim to arrive on scene as quickly and safely as
possible after being alerted to an incident via the ambulance
service control room following a 999 call in their area. While they are on route, the nearest ambulance vehicle, such as an emergency ambulance or fast response car is also on the way.
The chances of survival
decrease by 10% with each minute
that passes when a patients heart has stopped beating and
early defibrillation is the key to successful resuscitation,
therefore our team we will always try to attend any call that
is presented to us by East Midlands Ambulance Service, as we know our prompt attendence could in some cases
make a real difference to the patients chances of survival.
