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 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.

We’re proud to congratulate our very own paramedic, Warren Purse, on his Pride of Australia Heroism Medal. Warren has dedicated his life to keeping people safe on our roads, and has gone above and beyond the call of duty by teaching road safety in schools as part of the NT Government’s Choices Program. He will now go into the running for the national Heroism Medal which will be unveiled at the Bennelong Lawns in Sydney on November 15.Vote for Wazza in the People's Choice Award
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 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.

50 Dripstone Road, Casuarina, NT
Mondays 6.45pm to 8.30pm
The Cadet Band Division meets on Monday nights at 6:45pm to 8:30pm. Narelle McLaughlin is the superintendent of the division and receives help from Felix Ho (Divisional Officer/Trainer), Amy McKay (Divisional Nursing Officer) and Sarah McLaughlin (Cadet Leader).
The division has Cadet and Junior programs. Juniors can start from the age of 8 and will undertake activities such as basic first-aid and interest badges such as Cooking, Handicrafts, Fire Safety, Childcare and Anzac Heritage.
At the age of 11, juniors complete a first-aid course called Preliminary First-aid which now qualifies them as a Cadet and provides them with many exciting opportunities.
Annually Cadets must complete a first-aid re-accreditation to brush up on first-aid skills which allows them to attend public duties performing first-aid at public events such as BMX, Mindil Markets, Royal Darwin Show, Expo's and many other events.
Cadets also complete Proficiency Badges ranging from Cooking to Radio Communication and Personal Safety. If Cadets complete 12 badges between the age of 11 and 18 they obtain the Grand Prior's Badge which is a great honour.
Annually the Cadet band Division enters a Team, Individual and occasionally Cadet Leader into the NT Cadet Competitions. When successful in winning the NT competitions the Cadets travel down south to compete in Nationals and attend the National Camp in a different State each year. Cadet Band has brought home a National Team trophy in 2008 and most recently in 2012 the Cadet Band Individual won the National Competitions bringing home the Individual trophy. The first time the Individual category has been won by the NT since National Competitions
started in 1968.
Currently we don't have a music program however if interest for this program is shown the program could be reinstated.
