During April, our volunteers were on call for over 505 hours, about 70% of the time, responding to and attending emergency calls across Bransgore and surrounding areas. In addition, we assisted with the provision of about 120 hours on call in Ringwood.
Those who are not currently able to respond helped out by bringing back from London, numerous black cabs, whose drivers have loaned them to the ambulance service for the duration of this emergency to help with hospital travel arrangements for those who need to remain socially distancing while travelling to critical appointments such as dialysis.
The Lockdown and Social Distancing arrangements to combat Covid-19 continue but is proving its worth as it is being reported we have avoided the worst of the first phase.
But please... its is too early to relax. While the majority are complying, some can be seen mixing or gathering in numbers, maybe unintentionally, but placing others at risk of contracting the awful disease.
Stay at home
• Only go outside for food, health reasons or work (but only if you cannot work from home)
• If you go out, stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people at all times
• Wash your hands as soon as you get home
Do not meet others, even friends or family.
You can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms.
If you live in Bransgore we do recommend you follow the Facebook site for local residents
