The States of Alderney have thanked the volunteer ambulance service for saving man's life.
The team saved the life of a man who suffered two cardiac arrests during transfer to the Princess Elizabeth Hospital in Guernsey.
Boyd Kelly, Chairman of the General Services Committee, says "high quality training" combined with an "efficient emergency system" were behind the successful transfer operation.
The island’s ambulance service was taken over by the States of Alderney in January 2020 and combined under the leadership of the Fire and Rescue Service.
Ambulance duties are shared by 11 volunteers in addition to the island’s paramedic. Two of them are also fire-fighters and two are ‘seasonal’ volunteers who work or study off-island for part the year.
On 21 April, Mr Kelly spoke in a States of Alderney meeting saying he has "always been impressed by the willingness of island residents, to devote their spare time to helping others".
Mr Boyd also says a review will be conducted and hopes it will result in opportunities for people to become first-responders.
