Class Cancellations - Covid-19

As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 situation please know that the safety and wellness of our students, staff, instructors and volunteers are our top priorities. As such, the decision is been made to suspend all Training Centre instructional activities, effective 5pm, Tuesday March 17, 2020. We will monitor this on a daily basis and are reaching out to our students with additional information. Social distancing is essential, and as our First Aid and CPR classes are group gatherings in close quarters, we want to ensure the safety of our instructors and clients. The most important way we can help increase public safety and wellness is by limiting our interactions through our classes. Students may transfer to another class in the future or to our blended online training at no cost. Please contact us at 1-780-482-7863 to speak with one of our customer service representatives.

The Adam Piercey Memorial Training Fund

Fort McMurray, Sept 15 2018 – On September 18, 2018 the Mayor, Mr. Don Scott QC, along with over 50 attendees were present at the opening of St John Ambulance’s new Training and Community Service centre in Fort McMurray. In attendance were Gail and Edward Piercey, the parents of Adam Piercey, the young worker who died tragically in a work place incident in 2009.
The new facility offers three modern classrooms, increased parking and improved training facilities for community services. Up until 2018, St John Ambulance shared space with the Boys and Girls Club and before then a log cabin on McDonald Island. “The time was right for a new facility to meet our expanded course selection, commitment to the community and customer needs.” said David Hook, CEO of St John Ambulance, Alberta Council.
St John has been training members of the Wood Buffalo community since 1971 and in Alberta since 1897. Proceeds from training are reinvested back into the community through programs such as Medical First Response, Therapy Dog, Emergency Disaster Response and other critical services.  With this new facility, instructors, volunteers and those taking these lifesaving courses will receive a cutting edge training experience and the community will benefit from better housed, highly skilled volunteers.
