Volunteering and the Country Ambulance Service

For an Ambulance service to survive in small communities they rely heavily on volunteers and support from the community as a whole including its businesses.

A country service has to be sole supportive and is responsible for the day to day running of their fleet and facilities. This includes Purchasing Vehicles, Maintaining and Servicing them, Uniforms, Medical Supplies, Equipment and any other running costs associated with this.

Donations, Memberships and Kit sales are vital to keep this service operating at its current level. It costs thousands of dollars to purchase and maintain ambulances and lifesaving equipment. By becoming an Ambulance member or purchasing kits & supplies through your local Sub-Centre you are helping to meet these costs and assisting with the ongoing improvement and expansion of these services.
