St John Volunteers, jointly referred to as the Brigade, are South Africans of all ages, from all walks of life, trained in first aid, who offer their emergency care skills at a variety of public events where first aid may be needed. Organisers of sporting and social events regularly call on the St John Brigade to perform first aid duties at their functions.  Members regularly provide first aid cover for events such as the Comrades Marathon, Cape Town Cycle Tour, Ironman, Durban July, soccer and motorsport.

The St John Brigade is on call to the South African Military Health Service (SAMHS) in order to assist in times of national emergency.  Members also assist at local old age homes, children’s homes, local hospitals and clinics, as well as the community at large.

The high standard of training given to each volunteer ensures that they are equipped to handle any emergency – from a minor strain or heart attack to delivering a baby! Brigade members undergo rigorous re-testing at regular intervals. They compete against each other in national first aid trials in order to fine tune their skills. Added benefits of competitions allow members to demonstrate their individual leadership qualities as well as their ability to work in a team.

Young volunteers are known as Cadets. Tough assignments ensure that the youngsters, ranging in age from 9 to 18 years old, are able to handle any emergency, even when there is no one else around to help them with a casualty.

Such is the commitment and dedication of our members that all involvement is given completely voluntarily.  They even pay for their own uniforms.

By joining St John as a volunteer, you will:

  • Learn life-saving first aid skills
  • Develop leadership skills
  • Earn recognition through merit badges and competition work
  • Serve your community
  • Make new friends
