Emergency response and Community First Responders

 

In times of crisis, emergency support from St John Ambulance can be the difference between lives lost and lives saved.

 

Whether responding to a national disaster or an individual medical emergency, St John Ambulance personnel form a vital part of the nation’s emergency response system, working on the front line alongside the emergency services.

 

In severe winter weather conditions, volunteers crew 4x4 vehicles to help patients that couldn’t be reached by traditional ambulances, and transport community nurses who would otherwise be unable to reach patients relying on them for their routine care and medication.

 

Our Community First Responders respond to local emergency calls and provide life saving first aid in those vital minutes before an ambulance can arrive. In 2012, they responded to over 10,000 emergency callouts.
