Rotarians in Cumbria and Lancashire are one step closer to starting a Community Based First Response Unit.
A £65,000 investment from them and the Rotary International Foundation means members cab now work to provide emergency first response equipment to more local areas.
Rotarians are now working with the North West Ambulance Service, a number of Search & Rescue organisations and the National Forum for Health & Wellbeing to implement the various individual projects.
