I volunteer as an ambulance service first responder for no pay, on call, I can administer oxygen, use defibrillator and take a full range of observations, pulse, blood pressure, blood oxygen sats and temperature, trained to recognise a number of medical conditions including sepsis. Just doing my civic duty as I live in a rural area.Why aren’t SCs paid? Seems ridiculous that they are asked to do what PCs are without pay.
AR/RNR/RMR/R Aux AF carry out their civic duty too, but are financially rewarded. Still, I don’t think many do it for the money. I certainly didn’t, it was just beer money.
