Back to Community Services

Well-trained and well-equipped, St. John Ambulance Medical First Responder (MFR) volunteers attend countless public events across Ontario to provide basic and advanced first aid. We work hand in hand with allied agencies such as EMS, Police, and Fire Fighters. In case of a medical emergency our volunteers are prepared to provide the first response casualty care necessary to save a life, prevent further injury or provide comfort until emergency medical services arrive.

If you have an event that needs coverage, you can request it here.

Think you've got what it takes?

We’re always looking for hard working and enthusiastic people to join our community services units. If you are at least 16 years old, hold a valid standard first aid certificate with CPR, and are interested in first aid and healthcare related activities, we want to talk to you. Contact us to learn about volunteer opportunities and come out to see if St. John Ambulance is the place for you! In exchange for volunteering, we provide Medical First Response training at no cost. There are opportunities to drive a mobile first aid post, compete, and receive nationally recognized awards.

Don’t have a first aid certificate? Don’t worry, contact us and find out how to train today!
