You need to act quickly and decisively, because often getting emergency services to the scene as soon as possible can make a great deal of difference to the outcomes.
If you come across an accident or emergency, or if you are involved in one and are able to call us, there are some simple but very important things you need to do.

First Aid Courses
It is so important to know First Aid. If someone you know were to have an accident or suffer a medical emergency -- could you help? Having a St John First Aid Kit and learning first aid with St John could literally mean the difference between life and death.
First Aid Kits and Supplies
St John First Aid Kits are designed to provide the necessary items to cover most accidents and medical emergencies that might occur in the home or the workplace. For more information, please visit the St John website.
Friends of the Emergency Department
In times of distress, people need more than treatment. They also need information and support. But because Emergency Departments are always busy, staff often don't have time to give patients and their families the support and reassurance they're looking for. That's where St John Friends of the Emergency Department make such a difference.
