IFR’s shouldn’t be called to anything such as an RTA etc, but with the nature of emergencies which are naturally unpredicable it may happen, so all our IFR team members are trained to deal with far more than just those we have listed above.
What we do not offer
We do not attend emergencies unless it is via 999
Your local IFR team do not at any point replace the ambulance service. Your local IFR team is there to assist you until the ambulance arrival.
Another important aspect to remember is that an Ambulance will always be dispatched at the same time as your local IFR team is. However as your local IFR team are all based in the community it will mean in most cases we will be able to get to you before the ambulance arrives.
What to do in an emergency
This is the vital first stage in the chain of survival
Speak Calmly and Slowly to the emergency operator Ensure you give as much information as possible.
Ensure that you make yourself and the house or car etc as visible as possible and always remember that it is possible an IFR may arrive before the ambulance.
