MEDIA RELEASE

  16 Jun 2020


COVID-19 Advice No. 7

As the Northern Territory safely moves into easing restrictions St John NT is pleased to announce that we too are embracing the “new normal” and opening our doors to the public, recommencing classes and attending events.

First Aid Training

Public first aid training is underway in Palmerston, Parap, and Alice Springs. Courses will be available at the Casuarina Centre, Katherine, and Nhulunbuy in the coming weeks. To view our current schedule, please visit our Training pages.

First Aid Supplies

Our retail outlets remained open throughout the COVID restrictions to ensure that our community had access to vital first aid supplies and equipment.

As we approach the end of the financial year, St John NT would like to remind all businesses about the recent changes to the instant asset write-off. The changes allow any business with an aggregated turnover of less than $500 million to purchase tax deductible AED units until Tuesday, 30 June.

To encourage businesses throughout the Territory to take advantage of this great opportunity, St John NT is offering an additional $200 off some of our most popular units using promo code AED2020.
