Content Care Ltd, a Greatworth Hall-based community care company, has recently bought a cardiac defibrillator to donate to Brackley Community First Responders (CFR).
Brackley CFR is a voluntary charity which provides trained local responders who may be called upon by the East Midlands Ambulance Trust to attend emergencies local to Brackley prior to the ambulance arriving. Content Care Ltd, which is now based at The Old Dairy, was set up in 2001.
Anthony C Forkner, Content Care’s registered manager, said: “Both Brackley CFR and Content Care Ltd have at their heart the ethos of community service and so it seemed natural for us to support such a local charity.”
The cardiac defibrillator is currently being carried in Mr Forkner’s car together with his EMAS (East Midlands Ambulance Service) responder kit as he is a qualified community first responder as well as an emergency medical technician.
