Could you be a first responder?


Rother Responders is a local community first responder scheme operated by a team of volunteers who have been trained to respond to emergency calls through the 999 system in conjunction with the ambulance service. Tracy Pepler, team leader said: “We have responders in Rye, Camber, Peasmarsh, Northiam, Beckley, Icklesham and Staplecross ready to respond to emergency calls in their local and surrounding communities. We would like to express a big thank you to all those who have supported us so far. Rother Responders are hoping to expand further and we are looking to hear from people who might be interested in joining this voluntary group and who live in the rural communities where we do not currently have responder coverage.” To find out more and check eligibility, visit the website or contact them.
