I'd like to make this donation

I'd like to add a little extra to help cover fees.

There are thousands of defibrillators throughout WA.

BUT only 35% of WA's defibrillators are in locations that are accessible 24/7. We need you to help change this.

Right now you can help save more lives like Noah. Your donation today can ensure more defibrillators are accessible across this vast state on sites that are available to the WA community 24/7.

Around 33,000 Australians die every year from sudden cardiac arrest. And for every minute that passes without CPR and defibrillation, the chance of survival decreased by up to 10%.

We need to raise $75,000 to expand the First Responder Network, which will increase the accessibility of life-saving tools, like automated external defibrialltors (AEDs), throughout metro, regional and remote Western Australia.

Please donate today. Do it because sudden cardiac arrest can strike any person at any time: regardless of age, gender or health status. Or do it because you know, as we do, that during cardiac arrest, immediate first aid can increase the chance of survival and mean the difference between life and death.

"You never know, you might save a life like mine!"

Help us find you in an emergency

We know that sometimes pinpointing your exact location can be difficult but when a situation is life threatening, every second counts. The St John First Responder App sends your GPS coordinates to the operator when you call Triple Zero (000) for an ambulance, speeding up the time it takes to confirm your location and dispatch an ambulance.

The St John Ambulance First Responder is a free app  that is compatible with iPhones, iPads and android devices. It is available on Apple’s App Store and Google Play
