Not only will the First Responder App help pinpoint your location if you need to call an ambulance. It also has some handy – and vital - first aid info and resources inside.
The St John First Responder app allows you as a qualified first aider in WA.
Then if an emergency occurs in a public place within 500 meters of your location, you’ll be notified and given the opportunity to assist until the ambulance arrives.
To sign up and become a registered First Responder, download the app and register an account. To be eligible, all you need is a current first aid qualification.
The Defibrillator (AED) locator - shows all of the defibrillator locations near you and allows you to add locations not already on the map.
If you have ever been to an emergency room, you’ll know they can sometimes be quite busy.
To find 24-hour emergency care near you that can see you sooner, tap “Medical Centres Nearby”, which opens a map showing the nearest emergency rooms.
You can also use the app to get directions to the emergency room through your phone's preferred map application.
In a first aid emergency, knowing the right procedure can be life-saving. This is why the First Responder App has a range of First Aid Guides you can access at your fingertips.
One of the most important features of the First Responder App is the “Dial 000” function.
Calling from within the app will automatically send your GPS location to the St John WA call centre when you place a Triple Zero (000) call via the app and ask for Ambulance.
