Every year in Ireland, thousands of people, both young and old, die needlessly or suffer long term disability for the want of simple first aid. Members of the St. John Ambulance Brigade of Ireland are dedicated to the vision that first aid should be readily available to everyone, no matter where they are or what they are doing, at the onset of injury or illness.
As a uniformed volunteer, you will get to attend many public events including festivals, concerts, community and sporting events. We cover GAA, soccer, and rugby as well as many other sports. You will also help train members of the public in first aid. We run courses around Ireland, both at our premises and out in the community. You will also have the occasional opportunity to travel to Dublin, Cork, Belfast and overseas for competitions and large events.
The prerequisites for joining are that you enjoy teamwork, are responsible, have a reasonable level of fitness, and that you hold a certificate in First Aid. For those who would like to join, but don’t have a certificate, St. John Ambulance offers a night time first aid course to members of the public (see the link at the end of the page).
