St John First Responder App Banner

St John Ambulance WA has released a new, free smart phone app, First Responder.

The St John First Responder app has a range of features, one being its unique first responder capability. The app allows qualified first aiders to sign up as a first responder and be notified when someone has called 000 for an ambulance within 500 metres of their current location and in a public place. 

To become a first responder you will need to provide evidence of having completed a first aid course within the last three years. Minimum qualification level of HLTAID001 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation. We now offer the ability to become a BASIC level first responder in the app, by uploading your Photo ID.

If you’re not looking to sign up as a first responder yet, then that’s okay! The app also contains a number of other resources, including:
  • First aid instruction guides – helping you to treat a range of injuries and illnesses.
  • Triple zero (000) calling with automatic GPS location – calling 000 from the app will send your GPS coordinates direct to the St John State Operation Centre, making it easier for an ambulance to locate you.
  • Defibrillator (AED) locator - showing all the defibrillator locations near you.
  • Upload the location of new defibrillator (AED) locations that aren't currently appearing on the app.
  • Locate nearest medical centres and emergency departments - including live ED waiting time information. 
  •  Patient transport services information.
  • Your first aid course information and refresher reminder notices
  • First aid tips and special offers  - keeping you up to date with handy first aid information.

First Responder is a free app and available on Apple’s App Store and Google Play. You can find out more about how to use the app in our First Aid Responder App Guide.
