St John Ambulance

St John volunteers are ordinary people doing extraordinary things. Our uniformed volunteers provide reassurance and first aid assistance at community and sporting events, music festivals, cultural activities and major public functions.

About Us

St John is a self funded charitable organisation dedicated to helping people in sickness, distress, suffering or danger.

We aim always a to fund our activities as far as possible from our own efforts, primarily through the provision of first aid training, kits and first aid supplies and non- urgent patient transport with additional funding provided by private donations and bequests.

Tasmania’s premier provider of First Aid Services at events, our volunteers in their familiar black and white uniforms (and now high viz greens) provide quality first aid to the sick and injured at a wide range of community, social and sporting events.  Whether it’s a  rock concert, triathlon or mountain bike event; St John volunteers are there.

It’s what we have been doing in Tasmania for over one hundred years.

As an emergency support agency, St John volunteers are also called upon to provide first aid and support in times of emergency such as bushfires, floods and other disasters. In 2012 First Aid Services volunteers attended over 1,150 events, managed over 2,000 casualties and gave over 23,000 hours of their time with an additional 13,000 hours training and supporting the St John organization in various ways.

Could You Save a Life?

St John volunteers are unique in that they are ordinary people from differing backgrounds and professions who do the extraordinary by reaching out to those in need.

They are fully trained in areas as diverse as first aid and First Responder, defibrillation, radio communications, asthma and anaphylaxis management and leadership.
