Our centres are made up of a combination of Student Paramedics, Qualified Paramedics, Intensive Care Paramedics, Patient Transport Officers, Station Officers and Service Duty Officer ensuring that emergency ambulance care is available 24/7 for the Darwin region.

Given the large NT land area for a relatively small and remote population we work side by side with the aeromedical health transport services like the Royal Flying Doctor Service and Careflight to provide emergency transport across the region. Still, St John Ambulance emergency road transport is commonplace in remote areas especially at night when aircraft are restricted in movement.

 


 

Casuarina Head Office

The St John Ambulance NT head office is the Richard Morris Ambulance Centre located at 50 Dripstone Rd, Casuarina.

Communications Centres

St John Ambulance NT operates two communications centres in the Northern Territory. One is located in Alice Springs and the other at the Joint Emergency Services Communication Centre at the Peter McAulay Centre in Berrimah. This Berrimah Centre is one of a kind in Australia in that it houses police, fire, ambulance and emergency services in the one centre, and is hence called a Tri-Service Communications Centre.

We are available to receive emergency calls every hour of every day, every day of the year. Our experienced Communications Officers gather vital patient, location and situation information to provide emergency services and dispatch ambulances as quickly as possible.
