Charity no. 101165 Date registered. 03/04/2015

Public benefits

The public benefit that flows from our purpose is the provision of assistance to the Ambulance Service in life-saving intervention. The benefit is demonstrated through the number of callouts we respond to. The beneficiaries are residents of the BT22 postal code area. There is no private benefit to any person involved in this organization.

Incidental benefit arises to any individual whose life is saved through life-saving intervention. No harm will necessarily or intentionally result from any life-saving intervention. Incidental harm may arise if a patient’s ribs are cracked during external cardiac pressure. However, this is a well recognized unintentional clinical outcome.

What your organisation does

The organisation will respond to 999 calls originating in an isolated rural area, and forwarded by Northern Ireland Ambulance Service control room: to offer to heart attack victims and similarly affected citizens the opportunity in the first "few golden minutes" of receiving professionally trained support to keep them alive until further medical

assistance can be brought to bear.
