Help save a life

Personal message

NPO/ PBO - Community medics have been operational since 2007 and we need your help in order to continue the outstanding service our volunteers provide to the community.

 With covid, many donors lost their jobs and people tightened their reigns which meant less funding for us.  We help many families in need of medical assistance free of charge and your donation of as little as R100 can help save a life.

Community Medics’ vision is to provide first-world emergency medical care, free of charge, to all people in need. Our highly trained team of emergency medical personnel aim to deliver a rapid response to all medical emergencies, to all members of the community – regardless of their income status.

We strive to improve the standard of care for emergency medicine in South Africa and relieve the burden placed on state services. All our volunteers are trained professionals and are registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA).

Community Medics is operated by 50 plus volunteer staff. The team includes advanced life support, intermediate life support and basic life support medics, first aiders as well as a first responder programme.  We also run an emergency first aid responder service (EFAR) service.

We currently have four response vehicles, covering Atlantic Seaboard (Camps Bay, Green Point and Sea Point areas), City bowl (Cape Town CBD, Bo-Kaap, Higgovale, Tamboerskloof and Vredehoek areas) and Table View areas (Big Bay, Parklands and Sunningdale). All vehicles are properly registered in accordance with the National Road Traffic Act and the Western Cape Private Ambulance Act.

Our Service operates a 24-hour contact center to field any medical emergency. Once a call has been received, the Community Medics response vehicle or a volunteer is dispatched and coordinates with other available services. Community Medics will stabilize the patient whilst awaiting the arrival of an ambulance.

All the services we provide are free of charge. The objective of Community Medics is not to duplicate existing ambulance services, but rather to assist in a limited resource environment, to prevent long delays in emergency care that could have dire consequences.
