Become A Member of St. John Rescue

St John Rescue welcomes all types of community support.  Whether your interest lies in hands-on responding services, transport, or you just wish to help with fundraising and outreach activities, there is a place for you in the Organization.

Volunteers may become Responding Members or Supporting Members.  Active Responding Members participate in all operational aspects of emergency service delivery.  Supporting members support the Organization in other ways, including vehicle and building maintenance, fund raising, and community outreach.

Responding Members have no set commitment to a required number of hours per month of active, on-site duty. It is required in order to maintain a professional organization that can serve the community of St John with pride, that our responding members meet minimal training certifications and maintain continual education credits. This allows a volunteer to commit without the fear of being on twenty-four hour call. If you can give ten hours a month, then you can make difference in the community we call home. 

Supporting Members may commit as much time as they wish. This additional support will provide our responding members extra time to train, respond, and prepare for request of services.
