St John First Responder App’s main feature notifies a suitably qualified app user of an incident in their vicinity, giving them an opportunity to provide first aid to the persons needing it. Once an incident is accepted the app will display a map showing both the incident location, app user location and the shortest path to the incident, as well as a live tracker of an approaching ambulance.

Additional features:
- First aid guides
- 000 dialer
- Nearest automated external defibrillators (AED) locations
- Nearest medical centres and emergency departments
- Access to first aid tips
- Special offers from St John Ambulance WA
- Your courses and course reminders
- Upload the location of new external defibrillators (AED) locations
- Patient transport services information

The app integrates with the St John Ambulance WA website and allows course purchases at discounted prices.

* Please note that the First Responder App is designed for use in Western Australia. App features such as Nearby Defibrillators, Nearby Medical Centres and First Responder Incidents are only supported for Western Australian locations.

Great app


Good for first aid tips and tracking your first aid certificate expiry dates, BUT the only time I get first responder notifications is when I’m at work and I’m 100klms away from the nearest town on a mine site.

Hi Clint, thanks for your feedback. This issue you have seen was fixed in the latest version of the app (version 1.3.16). Please ensure you are running the latest version and do let us know if you still get the same behaviour occurring.

Current version neither helpful for me, nor the community


The app (both in iphone & ipad) isnt recognising that it has all of the relevant permissions to move FR status to Online.

Fantastic idea, poor execution.

Thankyou for your feedback. Please get in touch with us to diagnose your issue - there are iPhone settings related to Background App Refresh which may be causing this and they can be tricky to get right. There are many iPhone users who have responded to incidents, so we know our app is working. The app support email is StJohnMobileApp@stjohnambulance.com.au and the app FAQ page is here - http://www.stjohnambulance.com.au/online-resources/st-john-first-responder-app/st-john-first-responder-app-faqs
