“First aid is the initial assistance or treatment given to a person who is injured or suddenly taken ill. The person who provides this help is a first aider.”
(First Aid Manual 9th edition, 2011)
Our volunteers provide training in first aid as well as providing cover at public events across the Rock of Gibraltar.
Over the years since we were founded, St John has seen many instances where our immediate help has given people the chance to live, following an emergency.
