Have you ever thought about becoming an ambulance volunteer?
Take the step today.
It’s easier than you think.
In regional South Australia more than 1500 volunteers make up a network of over 80 volunteer teams for SA Ambulance Service. Volunteers provide professional emergency ambulance and patient transfer services within their communities.
As a volunteer ambulance officer you will gain the skills and confidence to take control in an emergency situation and to save the lives of others. The personal satisfaction and self-esteem that comes with this is immeasurable. But as well as learning life-saving medical skills, other life skills will get a boost – like decision making, team and leadership abilities. And our volunteers are trained in safe, defensive driving: that’s something you’ll call on every day.
As a prospective volunteer, you’ll have qualities that we recognise as important – your compassion, your commitment to the community and your willingness to learn are just a few. SA Ambulance Service wants to build on what you bring.
