Event logistics

Radio communications volunteer St John AmbulanceIt takes more than first aid to keep everyone safe at events.

Our radio communications team, volunteer drivers and logistics officers make sure that our skilled first aiders are properly equipped and are in the right place at the right time.

The event logistics teams provide our first aiders with the tools they need to do the job, through running radio communications at events, transporting equipment to and from events, and maintaining stocks of first aid supplies.

If you’re an organisational whiz, have a clean driving licence, or an interest in radio, we’d love to have you on our logistics team.

‘Knowing I’ve done my bit to help keep the city safe is what I enjoy most about volunteering. Being on duty at Potter’s Field during the 2012 London Olympics was incredibly memorable!’ – Malcolm, Radio Communications Volunteer
