First aid training comes in handy for a variety of different situations in life. Although many people receive this training strictly due to a job requirement, it is actually something that can benefit anyone's life. Getting trained in first aid is much easier than many people think.
To show you how easy it is and to help get you started the St John Ambulance Cadets can help you out with some of their handy First Aid tips!
St John Ambulance Australia (NT) Inc would like to acknowledge the outstanding contribution made by our dedicated volunteers. The hours are long; the work demanding; and there is no monetary reward. Yet the contribution made by these volunteers to the total well-being of the community brings with it its own rewards. St John NT volunteers contribute over 40,000 hours of service across the Northern Territory each year.

First Aid has always been a vital part of an effective emergency response and St John Ambulance NT is proud to train and certify over 10,000 Territorians each year, in the delivery of first aid.
However, as the provider of the Northern Territory St John Ambulance Service, we are concerned by the number of emergency calls received to attend road accidents, by people without the skills to assist the accident victim effectively.
St John Started operating the Ambulance Service in the Northern Territory (specifically in the Darwin Region) in 1975 as a result of two major incidents in the 1974-1975 era. The first being Cyclone Tracy (Christmas Eve 1974) and the second being the lead-up to Self-Governance for the Northern Territory.
St John Ambulance Australia (NT) Inc. is the supplier of the Professional Ambulance Service within the Northern Territory.
Our commitment to best practice care and treatment of the sick and injured in pre hospital care is paramount.
St John NT first aid training is proudly delivered by a team of qualified Trainers and supported by our customer focussed Training Administration team.
Both groups aim to make the St John (NT) training experience an enjoyable, relevant and valued learning opportunity.
Funds are provided through the ambulance services and other activities such as contract paramedic services, first aid training, kits and sales and our vehicle workshop. All our profits are put straight back into the community through supporting our Volunteers.
We know you share our passion for the Territory community and the valuable contribution our Volunteers make to the vibrant lifestyle and wonderful events we enjoy as Territorians every year.
St John Ambulance Australia (NT) Inc is a charitable organisation, relying heavily on the support of the community. It is this support that allows us to provide vital First Aid response through our Volunteers. To help support the work of our Volunteers, we manage a range of programs and services including First Aid Training Courses, Contract Services and First Aid Kit Sales. Revenue from these activities continues to provide the funds required to ensure our Volunteers are equipped with the highest standard of equipment and materials, allowing them to perform their invaluable role in the community, at their best.
However, as the Territory population continues to grow and community demand for Volunteer First Aid coverage continues to increase, our divisional buildings and infrastructure require redevelopment and refitting to ensure our growing numbers of Volunteers and Ambulance Officers are provided with safe and secure premises to attend professional development training and store valuable First Aid equipment. Your support secures the safety of our Territory community.
To achieve our fundraising goal of $2 million, we are inviting you to partner with us and invest in the future of the Territory community. Every donation brings us closer to our fundraising goal.
On behalf of all St John Ambulance across the Territory, we thank you for your support.
