St John WA’s frontline ambulance workforce has access to a range of P2/N95 masks to achieve the best fit available when they’re transporting patients. These masks are just part of our Personal Protective Equipment stocks which are carefully assessed for suitability and issued across our service. 

During lockdown, if you need an ambulance, call Triple Zero (000). Our ambulance service is fully operational and well-resourced. patients will be issued and fitted with a surgical mask when on board if appropriate. 

Patient and Community Transport Services will continue to operate with increased infection prevention and control protocols to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our staff and patients. These include masks for all passengers, physical distancing measures, use of hand sanitiser and only essential carers may accompany patients. 

Like many organisations in WA, St John is well-practiced at implementing infection control protocols. Everyone from our frontline workforce to first aid trainers to our GPs and dentists know exactly what they need to do to continue caring for the WA community.
