St John Ambulance Ireland is an organisation dedicated to the ideal that everyone should have immediate access to first aid no matter where they are or what they are doing at the onset of illness or injury.

With humble beginnings in Guinness’s Brewery in 1903, the organisation has been at the forefront of acute care and training throughout Ireland for over 100 years.

St John Ambulance Ireland pro-actively responds to changes in the pre-hospital field, working alongside voluntary and statutory bodies, including the Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC) and QQI.

The organisation is run by unpaid volunteers at all levels, up to and including our Commissioner, the de facto Chief Executive Officer. St John Ambulance members are self-selecting from all walks of life, and with various levels of pre-hospital training, both before they join and once they are members.

First Aid and Ambulance Cover for Events

St John Ambulance can provide first aid and ambulance cover at national and local events throughout Ireland. We pride ourselves in providing highly trained personnel, cycle responders and emergency vehicles for all types of public event.

In keeping with their committment to provide the best service, our members include First Aiders, Cardiac First Responders, Emergency First Responders, Emergency Medical Technicians, Paramedics, Advanced Paramedics, Doctors and Nurses.
