The emergency services are often known as First Responders: the first individuals we depend on calling to a scene of crisis. However, the length of time before a first responder arrives on scene can be a matter of life and death. This is why there is a need for the Zero Responder.
You and I are indeed the Zero Responder: members of the public already on the scene and able to administer help. The more we learn to help in times of crisis, the more lives we can save.
Further still, the recent Kerslake Report, from the Manchester Arena attack on 22nd May 2017, highlighted just how vital the role of the Zero Responder is when First Responders are kept away from the scene until it is secure. As with the terror attacks at London Bridge and Borough Market, the first people on the scene were venue staff and members of the public.
In these instances, emergency services are held back from what is called
the ‘Hot Zone’ until the scene is considered safe and secure enough for emergency services to enter without threat to their own safety. Consequentially, in response to access to healthcare on the scene of the Manchester Arena attack, the report highlighted that, “Respondents felt that healthcare at the venue for those severely injured was too slow. Many said they waited a long time on the floor for attention and treatment.”
If we can equip Zero Responders and teach Zero Responders essential life-saving skills, such as stemming the flow of a catastrophic bleed, we will inevitably save lives.
