People living in the Bridgend area are being encouraged to take part in the Welsh Ambulance Service's First Responder Scheme.
First Responders are volunteers who give up their spare time to attend appropriate 999 calls and give first hand emergency care to people in their community.
The Trust is especially keen to recruit in Maesteg, Porthcawl, Pyle and Kenfig Hill.
Every second counts when you're trying to save someone's life, and Community First Responder schemes are hugely beneficial in helping the ambulance service provide the best possible pre-hospital care for patients.
Many of our volunteers have taken experiences that life has thrown at them, such as seeing a loved one suffer a heart attack, and have moulded them into a positive outlook to help family, friends and neighbours.
If you are proud of the community in which you live, becoming a first responder can really help the heart of your village or town keeping beating long into the future.
