The minutes between when an emergency occurs and when help arrives is when St. John Ambulance training saves lives. St. John Ambulance has over 600 Community Service Volunteers that attend events throughout Alberta and provide First Aid coverage, but they can’t always be there in everyday life. Knowing the skills taught by St. John Ambulance instructors will prepared you for emergency medical situations and you could play a crucial role in saving someone’s life.
