Peter, unless we’re really lucky, we or our loved ones are going to need a St John Ambulance at some point in our lives - and when that time comes, we want to know that the ambulance officers who are looking out for us are being looked out for too.
St John officers don’t have an easy job. Dozens get assaulted at work every month.2 They constantly deal with serious injuries and deaths. One of the first things St John needs to do is make sure officers aren’t doing this job alone.
This understaffing at St John puts the public at risk.3 It is common for St John staff to work over eight hours without a break, attending live or death situations, both frontline and in the control rooms. They need your help to get St John back to the table to talk solutions. Peter, will you show your support for this essential service and the people who provide it?
