A third of all 999 calls are from a person at home whose partner has suffered a serious, life threatening event, so getting help to them quickly is vitally important.

VETS is a community run telephone system, and enables 11 Pebmarsh volunteers to be contacted at the same time, so hopefully one of them will be available to assist, pending the arrival of the emergency services.

The all-important VETS telephone number for Pebmarsh is:

01787 852 300
