St John Malta has three branches:

The Training Association (also known as The Training Branch), was founded in 1882. This was the first branch of St John Ambulance which was formed outside of the United Kingdom. It aims to teach First Aid to the general public and volunteers of St John Ambulance (First Aid & Nursing) and St John Rescue Corps.

 

The St John Ambulance (First Aid & Nursing), formerly known as the “Brigade” was formed in 1909 with its first “Division” in Valletta. It has a well trained staff of qualified First Aiders, who are always ready to provide assistance, whilst carrying out public duties such as sports events, culture activities and other functions. First Aid & Nursing also provides the government with First Aiders, as well as a small fleet of ambulances, which are deployed to assist in the event of a national emergency.

 

The St John Rescue Corps was formed in 1986 to provide fully trained and organised volunteer rescuers who are able to support the national civil protection services in case of major calamities and situations requiring humanitarian aid. Its members are trained in the field of urban search and rescue, firefighting and water rescue. It is regularly called upon for support at major fires, search and rescue operations and severe storms. The Rescue Corps also provides its services on a regular basis at national events and large public gatherings with its standby emergency fire and rescue services.
