COMMUNITY First Responders in Ross-on-Wye will soon be adding a second response vehicle to their scheme.

Made possible with the generous support of the Ross-on-Wye Lions and independent garage, BG Land Rovers, the new vehicle will come into service next month.

It will enhance the volunteer organisation's ability to respond to emergencies and provide a suitable vehicle to keep them on the road during inclement weather.

Funded entirely through donations, the Hereford and Worcester Community First Responders respond to emergency calls for the ambulance service, often reaching patients and initiating treatment ahead of ambulance arrival.

The new vehicle will be officially launched at 11am on June 1 at Ross-on-Wye's Market Hall.
