Arrive Alive Appeal

Arrive Alive provides support to the NHS ambulance service and Air Ambulances by providing paramedics and CFR's (Community First Responders) with rapid response vehicles. The vehicles will be used to assist with category ‘A' calls which are classed as serious life threatening emergencies such as; cardiac arrest, unconscious and collapsed patients, chest pains, breathing difficulties, diabetic emergencies, fitting or convulsions, stroke and anaphylaxis. As CFR's are contacted by Ambulance control and asked to attend emergencies within their area the types of terrains can vary greatly from dealing with standard roads to dealing with rural terrains which will require various types of vehicles. Arrive Alive will also provide additional apparatus to paramedics and CFR's such as defibrillators which will be used to provide CPR (cardio pulmonary resuscitation) also additional oxygen canisters as well as other necessary apparatus.

The outcome of the appeal will be to provide vehicles to communities across the United Kingdom which will enable reduced waiting times for emergency medical treatment. It will also enable patients to be transported to hospitals accident and emergency departments more efficiently rather than waiting longer periods of time to receive essential live save saving treatment. If you would like to support Arrive Alive please contact us at appeals@arrivealiveresponse.co.uk or via our Twitter page @Arrive_AliveUK or via telephone on 0345 504 8787.

North Dartmoor Search and Rescue

The North Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team (NDSRT) is a voluntary organisation based in Okehampton, linked to Mountain Rescue, England and Wales. For more than 30 years, our volunteers have been offering vital support for the Police and other emergency services by providing a Search and Rescue service for missing and injured persons, 365 days a year.

We do much more than come to the assistance of hill walkers and hikers lost or in difficulty on Dartmoor. We are often called out to search for and, if necessary rescue, many other missing people including the elderly, lost children and despondents.

The team is often mobilised by the Devon and Cornwall Constabulary following a 999 call. We respond immediately, day or night.

The NDSRT consists of around 40 highly trained unpaid volunteers drawn from many walks of life. Each brings unique skills and abilities which together create a professional and dedicated organisation.

Over the years, NDSRT has extended its responsibilities to cover more lowland areas of Devon, Cornwall and Somerset. Today, around half of all "call outs" are away from Dartmoor itself.

The team also provides vital safety cover and marshalling for local community and public events such as Ten Tors, an annual event involving some 2400 youngsters in a two-day expedition across Dartmoor.

Our organisation costs well over £15,000 per year to maintain, but as a registered charity, we are wholly dependent on donations from the general public. Your support is essential to protect this vital, and sometimes life-saving, service.
