LIVES Medics & First Responders are all volunteers who give up their time to respond to emergencies in your area. When you dial 999 not only will an ambulance be mobilised, but at the same time, the LIVES volunteers on call in your area will also receive notification that you need their help. The limited road networks surrounding the more isolated parts of Lincolnshire mean that many parts of this county often need to wait longer than others for an ambulance to arrive. These extra minutes are vital to a patient. In extreme circumstances this could mean the difference between life and death.
LIVES is organising a 200 MILE charity bike ride AROUND LINCOLNSHIRE COUNTY HOSPITALS on the 5th & 6th SEPTEMBER 2015 and are looking for riders to join in and cover all or part of the route.
