Volunteer support sought for vital role

The SA Ambulance Service is sounding the siren looking for volunteers in Robe and Kingston as the service launches a new community recruitment drive.

There is no better time to answer the call and take control in an emergency, to help save the lives of others.

Most patients are people with chest pain, breathing problems or pre-existing medical conditions with an occasional major accident.

Volunteers will always be paired with a qualified ambulance officer, who will be there to support them.

SAAS Robe Volunteer Sandy Moore has been a part of the service for an impressive 38 years.

“I grew up with my family in Robe and at the time of signing up to volunteer I had three young children and wanted to help ensure we had an ambulance, if they or anyone in our community needed help,” she said.

“Whether you work full-time, are a student or retired, volunteering with SAAS can help you broaden your skillset, meet like-minded community members and make new friends.

“With flexible rosters that can work around your lifestyle, you do not always need to be at the ambulance station when on-call.

“I have met some amazing people from all walks of life and we would love to have some more members.

“Come and join a great team because the feeling you get assisting people in need is so fulfilling.”

Contact regional team leader Taylor Martin on 0448 308 141 or the Volunteer Support Unit on 1300 175 584 to register your interest.
