Who we are
Set up in 2017 by constitution as a non-profit organisation Medical & Emergency Response Team became a register Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation in 2021.
The team aims to provide trained volunteers capable of delivering support to communities and the agencies serving them during incidents or adverse weather. To enable this we provide event first aid and medical cover which allows us to practice many of the skills utilised during incident response.
The team and its services are run entirely by volunteers and funding is achieved through provision of event medical cover. This funding pays for volunteer training, equipment, consumables and other team expenses.
The strength behind the team
Our team consists solely of volunteers, each individual bringing skills, knowledge and experience that allows the team to develop and continue to push the level of service we deliver.
Appropriate training is given to volunteers based on their role in the team with all patient care courses externally certified.
