Community members are also encouraged to download the free St John Ambulance First Responder app. Visit the St John WA website for more information.

The app has a range of resources:

  • First Aid Instruction Guide – helping you to treat a range of injuries and illnesses;
  • GPS Triple Zero Calling – calling 000 from the app will send your GPS coordinates directly to the St John State Operation Centre, making it easier for an ambulance to locate you;
  • Defibrillator Locator – showing all the defibrillator locations near you;
  • Medical Servicer Locator – highlighting the nearest medical centres and emergency departments;

Another feature is its unique first responder capability.  The app allows qualified first aiders to sign up as a first responder and be notified when someone has called 000 for an ambulance within 500 metres of their current location in order that they can provide assistance.

Maintaining Defibrillators

This handy maintenance checklist from St John Ambulance (Victoria) might be useful for those that manage public deliberators on their premise.

The Shire of Narrogin encourages all those that manage such units to ensure they are always in operational order for that emergency situation. If in doubt contact Narrogin St John Ambulance Sub Branch, or 98811322.
