On Saturday, Michael was pleased to attend the launch of Sevenoaks Community First Responders’ new 4×4 medical emergency response vehicle.
Communtiy First Responders are volunteers who are trained by the ambulance service to respond to emergency calls through the 999 system. Their new vehicle, supported by the Big Lottery Fund, has been named Ingrid after a member of the team who recently passed away.
Michael met the responders and discussed their important work. He was joined at the event by the mayor, the leader of Sevenoaks District Council and Tom Tugendhat, Member of Parliament for Tonbridge and Malling.
Michael said: “It is a great pleasure to be involved in the launch of Ingrid. Sevenoaks Community First Responders is an excellent voluntary organisation that plays a vital role in saving lives in our local community: this new vehicle will enable them to offer a better service than ever.”
