A Community First Responder scheme could be set up in Portree, if vital funds are raised.
Efforts are being made to raise £1,500 required to buy the necessary kit. Once purchase, the kit will also require maintenance and upgrading.
A Community First Responder is a local volunteer who agrees to undertake training in Basic Life Support. This then enables them to provide life saving treatment to those people within the community who are critically ill, in the first few minutes prior to the arrival of an ambulance.
