Community First Responder
The St John WA Community First Responder program provides life-saving support to cardiac arrest patients during the crucial moments before the ambulance arrives.
When someone suddenly collapses from a cardiac arrest, it's important to know if a defibrillator is close at hand. Organisations can register their defibrillator and contact details with St John WA, making it easier for the community to access a defibrillator quickly.
If your organisation has an internal defibrillator available during work hours or an external defibrillator available 24/7, we urge businesses to register their device on our network. Together we can help to improve cardiac arrest survival rates.
How our network works
The Community First Responder network enables us to send for help before the ambulance arrives.
Defibrillator network locations
The Community First Responder Network has more than 7,500 defibrillators registered, making life-saving first aid equipment even more accessible to the Western Australian community.
Whether you have a defibrillator that is only accessible during office hours, or you have an external defibrillator, by registering on our network, we can make a difference in improving the survival rate of cardiac arrests.
