FIRST RESPONDER
A first responder is a person competent in advanced first aid (including oxygen administration and the use of an automated external defibrillator). A first responder may be a salaried/non-salaried member of a fire/police/ambulance service, a community based organisation (e.g. first aid and water safety/rescue services), or any other organisation having in place the necessary systems.
