The Harlech First Responders are a team trained by the Welsh Ambulance Service to assist them with attending certain categories of Emergency calls. We are not required for all 999 calls – just those that may be considered ‘Life Threatening’ e.g. heart attack, stroke etc.WAS badge

The First Responders are not a ‘replacement’ Ambulance Service, but because we are already in the local Harlech area we can respond to calls very fast, and usually arrive before the Ambulance does, giving vital Life Support in the first few minutes after an Emergency Call.
