St John WA

St John WA will celebrate a century of delivering the emergency ambulance service in Western Australia during July next year. The organisation has a workforce of about 13,000 people including qualified paramedics and volunteers who support people in medical emergencies, and it covers the biggest footprint of any single ambulance service in the world.

The emergency ambulance operation is supported by a suite of interconnected services which wrap around the Western Australian community to build resilience and provide access to care. This includes patient transfer services, First Aid training and resources, primary care including Urgent Care centres which deliver on-demand care for people who would otherwise have to attend an emergency department, and a range of education and support programs for the public.

St John WA also delivers charitable programs including free first aid programs for kids aged from pre-kindy to year 9, community transport run by volunteers to support people to access health care, and the Community First Responder program and First Responder Network which deliver access to public defibrillators and trained volunteers across WA. These services are supported by St john Giving.
