About First Responders


Who can become a volunteer?


YOU CAN: If you have a few hours spare per week, or per month, you could be one of our volunteers. You must have access to a car and live in either the Danbury, Bicknacre, Little Baddow, East Hanningfield, Woodham Mortimer or Woodham Walter areas.

Anyone can become a volunteer, but you must:
  • Be physically fit
  • Aged 18 or over
  • Agree to a criminal record bureau check
  • Have a sympathetic, caring nature
  • Agree to undertake training
  • Own a car

We would like to hear from you!

If you would like to know more or are interested in joining please contact the group co-ordinator, Gordon Wren with your details and he will let you know the date of the next training session. If you live outside the Danbury or surrounding areas, but would like to join a local responder group, send your details to Gordon and they will be forwarded the group covering that area.

It is our aim to have sufficient volunteers to offer the residents of Danbury, Bicknacre and Little Baddow, Woodham Mortimer and Woodham Walter  24 hour cover, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

If you run a society or community group and would like Gordon or one of our volunteers to give a talk or presentation, please contact us


Unable to volunteer, but would like to help? 


Some people are unable to volunteer to become a First Responder, but could still help us. For example, help us raise funds, PR work at local events, being an ambassador for our First Responder Group. You don't need special knowledge, just have an approachable manner.
