For accidents and Emergencies requiring the urgent attention of the Fire Service, Police, Ambulance or Mountain Rescue, Dial 999 (or 112 from any mobile)

First Responders: 

Our parish is included in the area covered by the Cockermouth First Responders via the 999 and 112 services. This is a voluntary organisation able to provide basic life-support and first aid to the community of Cockermouth and its outlying villages, working closely with the emergency services and with other local First Responder groups. The group is a Community First Responder group which means that the emergency volunteers all live within the community. The main benefit of this is that trained and qualified help is in a position to get to a medical emergency quickly and be an important link in the Chain of Survival.
