Getting involved

There are a number of ways you can get involved with your local ambulance service.

  • Get involved with our community projects and events

    We run a wide-ranging public education programme which aims to increase understanding of our work, how people should use the 999 service and what they should do in a medical emergency.

  • How we get involved with schools and public education

    The public education team organises special events, including junior citizen schemes, crime and safety awareness days, and school visits.

  • Become a volunteer medic in your community

    You can help your local ambulance service by becoming an ambulance community responder. You will be trained to attend emergency calls in your local area and provide first aid to patients until an ambulance arrives.

  • Learn to save a life

    Have you ever thought about learning how to save someone’s life? Would you know what to do if someone suffered a cardiac arrest, heart attack or was choking?

  • Work for us

    If you want a job that really makes a difference to people’s lives, why not come and work with us. As well as roles directly related to caring for patients, we employ people in a range of support departments that play a key part in making sure we can respond to anyone needing our help 24-hours a day, 365 days a year.
