Andy Jeynes Community Response Manager for West Midlands Ambulance Service UNHSFT said

''We are overwhelmed by the generosity of Arrive Alive and the support they have given our Community Responders. WMAS UNHSFT have a number of Responders across the region who support the Ambulance Service in delivering the right Patient care to the Right place at the right Time. These Volunteers respond in their own time to life threatening emergencies to render first aid prior to the arrival of an Ambulance. They are completely self-funded and the provision of Scheme Responder cars by Arrive Alive to these lifesaving groups is amazing. WMAS UNHSFT welcome the support Arrive Alive have given our Schemes and we look forward to continuing working together''
