Saving lives? There’s an app for that.    

A free app full of resources to help life go on for you, your workmates, or your loved ones.

Anyone with a smartphone and a first aid qualification can potentially save a life. 

The St John First Responder App has a range of features, one being its unique first responder capability. The app allows qualified first aiders to sign up as a first responder and be notified when someone has called 000 for an ambulance within 500 metres of their current location and in a public place.

If you’re not looking to sign up as a first responder yet, then that’s okay! The app also contains a number of other resources, including a directory of defibrillator locations, comprehensive first aid guides and a “call 000” feature that automatically sends your exact GPS coordinates to the St John Ambulance State Operations Centre when calling from within the state of Western Australia

How does the St John First Responder App work?

We’ve created a comprehensive FAQ here. Over 33,000 West Aussies have already downloaded the app.  

First Responder is a free app and available on Apple’s App Store and Google Play.
