Milestone marking lifesavers looking for new team members

A team of volunteer medics celebrating a decade of saving lives are looking for new recruits to join their ranks.
This year was the 10th anniversary of the November Zulu 452 community responder scheme, which sees trained volunteers go to 999 calls in the Woodbridge area, dealing with cardiac arrest, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, severe allergic reactions, diabetic emergencies, unconsciousness, stroke and falls. They have responded to thousands of calls and have restarted the heart of more than 20 people. But the search is on for recruits after the recent loss of two members.
