Falls initiative featured on BBC Look East

Yesterday, BBC Look East (West) covered the joint falls initiative between EEAST and the Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Service

Featuring our very own Community Response Manager, Tom Barker and the team from the Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Service. BBC Look East discussed how we are rolling out a Falls Response Programme across the region with our network of community first responders (CFRs).

This programme involves community first responders or fire and rescue crews responding to calls that we have clinically assessed. They are trained to assist the patient from the floor and undertake an assessment.

We are very pleased to be working with our Blue Light colleagues in Bedfordshire and other locations to provide prompt help and assessment for these patients. #WeAreEEAST

Thank you to all those who have been involved. If you have not yet watched the piece, it is available until the end of today (19/02) on BBC iPlayer here.
