Responder Liaison Officers

Responder Liaison Officers (RLOs) provide a vital link between responders in their local area and the Community Responder Officers. RLOs are ambulance clinicians who volunteer to take on the additional role, which includes acting as the communication link, providing professional and emotional support, training and the replacement of equipment and consumables.

Many RLOs support a number of groups, and every month support group meetings and training sessions. As well as supporting community responders, many also work with our Fire Service Co-Responders and Establishment Based Responders, with some also attending incidents whilst off duty, as Staff Responders.

Bath-based paramedic Simon Moody has been hailed a hero after he stepped in to save the life of a Clevedon man – while off duty – and is encouraging everybody to learn the lifesaving CPR skill. South Western Ambulance Service’s (SWASFT) paramedic Simon Moody was off duty and stuck in Bath city centre traffic in the pouring rain in May 2017 when he noticed a man looking unwell on the pavement. It soon became clear the man was struggling to breath and was going into cardiac arrest at the side of the road, as passers-by tried to help. Luckily for the patient Simon stepped straight in and gave him chest compressions putting his paramedic life-saving skills into action before backup from his ambulance crew mates arrived.
