Nova Scotia Volunteer Medical Responder

Request Event Coverage

Well-trained and well-equipped, St John Ambulance volunteers are at countless public events to provide first aid care when emergencies occur. By being there, St. John volunteers are “first on the scene” in the critical minutes until medical assistance arrives.

Please ensure your request is sent in to us as soon as possible to increase your likelihood of receiving our volunteer services.
We require a minimum of two weeks notice to provide coverage for events. 

All efforts will be made to ensure our volunteers are available for your community event, however, we operate on a first-come, first-serve policy based on volunteer availability.

Submission of the Event Coverage Request form does NOT guarantee first aid coverage. A St. John Ambulance representative will contact you for further details about your event and your requirements.

If you are a new Organization you will need to create an account first before you can apply for First Aid Coverage. Please enter your Organization, name, and e-mail address.  Once you submit these details you will receive an e-mail in order to activate your account.  Once you have activated your account, you will need to login with your email and password and apply for First Aid Coverage by logging into your administration area and submitting the event details through the “Request Coverage” tab. Please note that your event coverage is not submitted until you have completed this last step.

Although no fee is charged for first aid coverage, we do welcome donations. Donations assist in the cost-recovery of first aid supplies, transportation, volunteer training requirements and the general operation of our volunteer divisions.
