Brentwood, 10.36pm: 17°C, few clouds

You never know when you might need the First Responders


I was joined on this Bank Holiday by RON RIDGE from the Brentwood section of First Responders, who have been operating in Essex for over 20 years.

The original aim of the organisation was to provide early pre-hospital care to people living in areas that can be difficult to reach within those life critical early minutes following a heart attack, cardiac arrest or where a patient has lost consciousness.


You can listen here in more detail to what Ron told me about the organisation:-

If you are interested in joining, or perhaps helping First Responders, why not contact Ron by e-mail  – or via or take a look at their website

Later in the programme we heard about the Ohio man who called police after he found that he was being stalked on his way home by a pig!

And no he wasn’t drunk, he was truly being followed by the pig as it wanted to be petted!

Well there’s a thing!

See you once more tomorrow,
