Gloucestershire & Worcestershire 4×4 Response needs you

MOST READ

Gloucestershire & Worcestershire 4×4 Response is urgently looking to increase the number of volunteer controllers and response drivers.

New recruits are needed ahead of the busiest time of the year, throughout the autumn and winter.

In the past, GW4x4R has boasted more than 60 response drivers but this number has declined with a team of just 43 response drivers and five controllers covering the whole of the Gloucestershire and Worcestershire region.

Numbers are important because, if we look back at events like the ‘Beast from the East’ a few years ago, GW4x4R volunteers covered over 5,000 miles, with 1,200+ miles of those being driven in the Forest of Dean area by just three volunteer drivers!

And while we may not have seen wintery condition like that for some time, adverse weather conditions are becoming a regular event, with widespread flooding across the counties reported recently.

GW4x4R is a non-profit-making, voluntary organisation and member of 4×4 Response UK.

BORDA-trained volunteers offer their time and use of their own 4×4 vehicles to provide support and assistance across the region during periods of severe/adverse weather or emergency when, in an age of financial restriction, many organisations simply can’t afford to maintain a sufficient fleet of four-wheel-drive vehicles for its own deployment.

Organisations we have agreements with include: NHS Trusts, Regional Ambulance Services, County Councils, Town Councils, Care Homes & Hospices and other voluntary services and organisations.

GW4x4R team members come from all walks of life and are united by a desire to help communities – particularly their most vulnerable residents – during adverse weather. And you don’t even need a 4×4 vehicle to help as there are two main roles within the group.

Response Driver
