St John Ambulance

Why St John?

St John provides First Aid & Event Health Service to any event no matter how big, small or unique.

From a single Medic at a corporate function, to hundreds of Medics, Health Professionals and Support personnel at multi-day mass participation events and festivals, if there’s a health services need at your event, St John has it covered.


St John Ambulance is the largest provider of reliable, best practice First Aid and Event Health Services. With our more than 130 years of experience, more event organisers continue to put their trust in St John than any other provider.


St John now utilises industry leading technology at major events and venues that provides Event Organisers with real time access to casualty trend data, real time heat mapping of where casualties are occurring and real time GPS tracking of where Responders are located, enhancing response times and providing critical information where and when it’s needed.


Our organisation is supported by a growing workforce of more than 2,500 professional volunteers, many are Doctors, Nurses and Paramedics in their regular line of work, or studying toward a Health Professional qualification. Combined with a rapidly increasing team of casual responders, the scale of our workforce means we are in a unique position to guarantee our attendance, so you won’t be let down.


A professional volunteer workforce enables us to provide unbeatable rates. We back this up with our Price Beat Guarantee. Send us a quote from a qualified commercial provider for a like-for-like service and we’ll guarantee to beat it.


Setting the benchmark in our industry for a premier service delivering best practice First Aid, St John members undertake a range of advanced, nationally accredited qualifications and require annual re-accreditation to ensure skills and competencies are updated with current best practices. As Australia’s leading commercial First Aid training organisation, our team get the very best.


All proceeds from St John’s commercial activity are put into community programs such as our First Aid in Schools program. To date, we’ve taught more than 1 million school children in life saving First Aid, at no cost to school or parent.


St John is the supplier of choice at major venues including Etihad Stadium, Simonds Stadium, AAMI Park, Rod Laver Arena, Hisense Arena, Margaret Court Arena, Sidney Myer Music Bowl, Festival Hall, Flemington Racecourse, Moonee Valley Racecourse and many more.
