Welcome to Newbridge CFR

Newbridge Community First Responders (CFR) are a group of volunteers dispatched by the 999/112 National Ambulance Service to emergencies within the Newbridge Area.

We are Volunteers “on call” who live in the locality. We are your n​eighbours and work colleagues. We are trained and certified in the provision of  CPR and other life-saving measures. We provide support to those people experiencing Chest Pains, Cardiac Arrest, Choking or Stroke symptoms.

A little bit of us:

What your donation will benefit your community volunteers group in 2023:

Adult Pads

We are constantly using and replacing pads. For every call we will carry at least one or two sets of Adult Pads.

Paediatric Pads

Unfortunately some paediatric pads have to be used. Our stock is currently very low at the moment.


Although some PPE are provided by HSE, we still have to buy some to keep in stock. These are very important for our own safety in every call.

Instructor equipments

In every training session our equipment is used to deliver the best training possible to both new and senior volunteers.

Baby Manikins

For practicing both choking and CPR with volunteers and members of the public.

Airway Management

For practicing the use of advanced airway management with senior volunteers.
