Community Medics – Emergency First Responders – GG1987447

Project Overview

Community Medics is a volunteer emergency medical response organization. They provide FREE 1st world emergency medical care to communities, regardless of income status. They have 80 volunteers and only 15 based
in the southern suburbs division (which is the largest division) and around our communities, that are actively serving calls, whether they are on or off duty. Community Medics have a World Class dispatching team that work behind the scenes to ensure all calls are managed from start to finish. Their aim is to provide rapid response in medical emergencies in South Africa, thereby closing the gap between those who can’t afford private services and those who can. This is turn relieves the burden placed on state and private services to ensure a faster response as the state services can take hours to respond by which time it could be too late for the patient. Private services generally respond to those that have medical care plans.
