The Space Place Self-Storage in Telford, England, Supports Local First-Responders Team

The Space Place Self Storage Ltd. in Telford, England, is donating free use of a storage unit to a local first-responders team to act as the organization’s base. The volunteers of Telford & Wrekin Community First Responders (CFR) will use the unit to store equipment, fundraising tools and uniforms. The group includes trained individuals who perform life-saving treatments for people in their community prior to the arrival of an emergency ambulance.

“Without the company’s generous support, our team of 15 volunteers would have to store materials and equipment in their homes and garages, which, as you can imagine, is far from ideal,” said CFR spokesperson Steve Brown.

CFRs are trained by West Midlands Ambulance Service personnel to provide treatment such as CPR, defibrillation and other life-saving techniques for various emergency situations. The volunteers respond to people in their rural communities within five miles of their base location, according to the organization’s website. CFRs rely on public funding to purchase equipment that aids in patient care. The volunteers include bankers, engineers, teachers and other professionals.

“When it comes to self-storage, it’s important to know your belongings are in the very safest of hands, and this couldn’t be more true for the Community First Responders, who rely on their stored items to quite literally save lives. We look forward to supporting the team in the months and years ahead,” said David Cole, director of The Space Place.

Founded in 2005, The Space Place is family-owned and -operated. It has a second storage facility in Leicester, England, according to the source.
