St. John Ambulance has played an integral role in fabric of Albertan communities since 1897. While our core services revolve around first aid training and community services we also offer a variety of initiatives for Albertans of all walks of life.
We Can Help Too! is a first aid and safety program specifically designed for students in grades 3 and 4. A set of ten lessons are presented here and can be delivered by teachers over a number of different sessions. Lessons can be presented individually or combined where time allows for longer periods offering flexibility that fits with the needs of any class or school group.

Adam Piercey was a young worker who died as a result of injuries he sustained in a workplace accident. In his honour St John Ambulance has established the Adam Piercey Memorial Training Fund. This fund will be used to train youth in the Fort McMurray area in Standard First Aid. If you are between the ages of 16-20, live in the Fort McMurray area and want the confidence to protect the ones you love call St. John Ambulance today.
First Aid competitions have been a St. John Ambulance tradition since they were first introduced in England in 1880. The primary purpose of the competition is to provide teams an opportunity to test their First Aid knowledge and skills in a realistic simulated incident. Teams of up to four members from across the Province compete for the honour of being the top First Aid Team in one of five divisions: Emergency First Aid, Standard First Aid, Medical First Responder, Advanced First Aid, and Emergency Responder.
