Lincolnshire Emergency Medical Response launched as an independent charity in September 2011 and evolved from the First Response Organisation that has been helping the people of Lincolnshire since it was founded by Scott Bateman MBE in 1998. Scott founded First Response following the death of his father who suffered a fatal heart attack. He felt that his father may have survived had someone with advanced life support skills been able to reach him sooner.
The Charity comprises of serving and ex-service volunteers from the Armed Forces who provide a rapid response to 999 emergency calls in support of East Midlands Ambulance Service. Approximately 30 Volunteers operate in two man crews that operate two fully equipped Skoda Octavia Rapid Response Vehicles; these crews attend emergency calls throughout the County of Lincolnshire. The crews are directly tasked by East Midlands Ambulance Control Centre and are dispatched to emergencies via a computer alerting system fitted to each vehicle. On arrival at an incident the crew will assess the situation, triage patients and utilise their skills to preserve life, whilst passing relevant information and updates to the Ambulance Control Centre. Upon the arrival of an East Midlands Ambulance Service crew, a comprehensive handover is carried out and the volunteers will then assist until stood down or re-tasked. As a non profit charity we depend on public donations to continue our efforts. Donations are received from a variety of sources that include collections at local supermarkets, donations from the families and people whom we have helped and donations from local Companies.
