Make Ready:

The Make Ready team is a small but committed team who prepare the Responder equipment for events. The team volunteers at all events we attend at also works at the FMS HQ in Evercreech, in Somerset.


The team attend larger events and provide twenty-four hour cover, issuing equipment and consumables and maintaining services for the responder teams. In a similar way to our fleet team much of the time spent volunteering is outside or away from the event.

This small, but vital team provides an essential service to our clinical volunteers by providing the right kit at the right time. This essential work ensures FMS is able to deliver high quality care all the time, every time.



The FMS Responder team receives a large number of applications each year, a number that increases year on year. The First Responder Team aims to respond to applicants in 4 weeks. Recruitment continues throughout the year although during the event season (May – September) it may take longer than 4 weeks to hear about your application.
