Udny Community Trust is delighted to have reached an agreement with Pitmedden First Responders to make our new building at 14 Oldmeldrum Road, their base in the Village. The First Responders will use the facility as a local venue to hold regular training sessions and as a secure location to store some of their vital life-saving equipment.
The service provided by our local First Responders group is so important, and it is great to be able to support their work in this small way.
Alistair Drummond from the First Responders group said "Use of the Udny Community Trust facilities and building will provide Pitmedden Community First Responders with dedicated training facilities at the heart of the community. We appreciate the continued support of the Trust that assists us in supporting the Scottish Ambulance Service and the local community."
He went on to say, “We are always keen to welcome new responders and after routine checks and initial training, we are looking for one night a month training and as many on call periods that you can commit to, with no minimum.”
Anyone interested in joining Pitmedden First Responders should contact Alisdair by email at email@example.com and he will get back to you as soon as possible.
