Volunteers’ Week – meet LAS’ volunteer responders

Volunteers play a vital role in our Service – and their contribution has never been as valuable as it has been in the past year as we faced the challenge of responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. On Volunteers' Week we are highlighting the contribution of our volunteer responders to Team LAS and for what they do for our Service and for Londoners when volunteering their time. Emergency Responders are London Ambulance Service trained volunteers who respond to 999 calls in Service uniform and in our liveried vehicles, on blue lights and sirens. Community First Responders are volunteers trained by St John Ambulance and LAS and are dispatched by our control rooms to respond from their home, work or elsewhere in the community to patients in their local area to give first aid and care prior to the arrival of LAS clinicians.
