Welcome to Ulceby and Wootton Area first responder Team
LIVES is a Lincolnshire based responder scheme working alongside the
East Midlands Ambulance Service.
LIVES First Responders are all volunteers who give up their time to respond to emergencies in your area. When you dial 999 not only will an ambulance be mobilised, but at the same time, the LIVES volunteers on call in your area will also receive notification that you need their help.
LIVES, which stands for Lincolnshire Integrated Voluntary Emergency Services, has been running in the county since the early 70's, orignally manned by Local General Practice Doctors and off duty Paramedics. The need for locally trained community members to aid the Ambulance Service in this large rural region created the LIVES Responder, introduced into the County in 1999 this was residents trained up by Paramedics to serve their immediate community to reduce the time taken for emergency care to be administered.
Ulceby and Wootton LIVES was born in september 2001 made up of people from all walks of life and varying ages. The Team always needs new members, from those who wish to help with fundraising, wish to put their knowledge and influence into the progression of the team to those who wish to help keep their family and neighbours safe and alive.

Ulceby and wootton First Responder Group covers Ulceby, Wootton, thornton Curtis, croxton and kirmington
killingholme and east halton First Responder Group covers East halton, North and South Killingholme
we also cover villages out side our area when there is no cover available from other groups
we are all trained in event first aid
A First Responder currently entails four levels of experience:
Basic Responders (level 2) are called out to Breathing problems, Heart Attacks and non Traumatic injuries. 12 years of age and above.
Intermediate Responders (Level 3)cover everything a Basic does, but are called out to all ages as well as Traumatic incidents and Road Accidents.
A volunteer who wishes to be a Responder has to be a Basic Responder first and must get a level of experience behind them before moving to an Intermediate. There is no commitment to having to become an Intermediate Responder if a person doesn't like the idea of blood or is comfortable with their level of experience.
fundraing staff are always appreciated, as we do not get funded by the NHS or goverment and as a charity we have to fundraise to keep the group going
we have to raise approx £1800.00 per year towards training and equipment
