A life saving resource has been loaned to Windsor’s Community First Responders (CFRs).

The group has been loaned a Dacia Duster 4x4 which is based at Windsor ambulance station.

The vehicle will be used by first responders to attend life threatening emergencies and has been loaned to them by the vehicle manufacturer for a year.

It was decked out in distinctive livery using money from a grant from the Royal Borough.

The volunteer group is also hoping to raise £1,000 for a light for the top of the vehicle.

Windsor CFRs co-ordinator Frank Epstein said: “We don’t use blue lights as that requires specialist training, but spotlights for the roof are invaluable in the dark to help identify addresses.”

The new car was presented outside Windsor Castle on Monday with the help of Royal Borough Mayor, Cllr Sayonara Luxton, and Cllr Colin Rayner (Con, Wraysbury and Horton).
