A new emergency vehicle which will enable vital pain relief to be carried, has been handed to a town’s community response team.

Risboro Garage generously gave the Honda CRV 4x4 emergency vehicle as a gift to the Princes Risborough Community First Responders (CFR) team.

Mark Tubb, chairman of the Rural Community Defibrillation Group thanked Risboro Garage directors Sean Graham and Tim Stevens for the gift which will significantly improve the responsiveness and capabilities of the team.

It was a landmark day for the CFR team, established five years ago and now made up of a team of eight volunteers.

Team member Geoff Clark said: “A 4x4 will give us great access in all weathers and terrain.

“But most importantly it enables us to carry Entonox (gas and air), a vital pain relif which can only be carried in vehicles which are insured through the ambulance service.”
