Considering becoming a Community First Responder?
Here’s what you need to know . . .
About Us About you
The Ambulance Service of New
South Wales (Ambulance) provides
emergency health transport, rescue and
patient transport systems to the NSW
As part of NSW Health – and as one of the largest
ambulance services in the world – we provide prehospital
healthcare to a population in excess of seven
million people, via a workforce of more than 4,000
employees and 250 volunteers in over 300 locations.
To carry out what can be life-saving work, we operate
a fleet of more than 1450 ambulance and other
vehicles, and our annual expenditure budget is in
excess of $600 million.
Paramedics and Ambulance Volunteers work
within our Operational Services function, which is
responsible for the delivery of front line pre-hospital
care, medical retrieval and health related transport.
Despite the size of our organisation (and the many
kilometres we cover), our core values are shared
amongst all employees and volunteers. We strive to
always uphold professional standards of behaviour, to
promote and encourage teamwork, to act responsibly,
be accountable and show care and respect.
As an Ambulance Volunteer you will help to
enhance patient’s lives, and possibly even,
save them.
We currently have over 280 volunteers based across
rural NSW, who are just like you: selfless people who
want to help their local community in a meaningful way.
It’s therefore not surprising that our network of over
45 country volunteer teams is staffed by very special
people who care about their family, friends and
Ambulance Volunteers are looking for a little more out
of life – to go that extra mile, to help another person in
need. The commitment, effort and support shown by
our volunteers is nothing short of inspirational.
‘If I had to sum up this role I would
say the love you put in is what comes
back to you through giving. Volunteering
with Ambulance is definitely suited to
people who are inspired to help others
from their hearts . . .’
