The Silver Second Appeal

Arrive Alive funds vital lifesaving vehicles and equipment for Community First Responder (CFR's) who attend life threatening medical emergencies.

CFR’s are medically trained volunteers who attend 999 calls. CFR's receive lifesaving medical training from the ambulance service. Equipment and vehicles are not funded by the government or ambulance service. CFR’s have the skills to attend 999 calls but we need your help to get them to the medical emergency.

Following the launch of 'The Silver Second Appeal', Arrive Alive has been able to launch and fund three lifesaving vehicles within Birmingham, Solihull and the Black Country. However additional voluntary operated lifesaving vehicles and equipment are urgently needed.

Each equipped liveried operational lifesaving vehicle costs approximately £25,000.
