Q: I NEED A QUOTE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. ARE YOU ABLE TO PROVIDE ME WITH A QUOTE OVER THE PHONE?
A: To provide you with the most accurate quote possible, we do require the online booking form to be completed. This helps us to ensure we have all the correct information to support your event. If you require a quote within a short timeframe, submit an online booking form and then contact us at Events@stjohnsa.com.au to let us know your timeframe. In every instance, we will do our best to meet certain time restrictions.
Q: MY EVENT IS COMING UP IN A COUPLE DAYS – IS ST JOHN AMBULANCE SA ABLE TO ASSIST?
A: While we do ask for a minimum of two months’ notice for event bookings, we understand this is not always possible and will do our best to accommodate all requests. For urgent bookings, we still require the online booking form to be completed and give us a call on (08) 8306 6941. Once this has been received, we can begin processing your booking request.
Q: WHAT IF THERE ARE NO VOLUNTEERS AVAILABLE ON THE DATE OF MY EVENT?
A: We will always do our best to secure volunteer members to attend your event. However, in the case where we are completely booked out, we do have an option for casual staff pool to supplement our volunteer member numbers. Please note that the casual staff pool is limited and there is no guarantee they will be able to support the event. It’s important to note that the earlier we receive a booking request, the more likely we can secure volunteers and/or casual staff.
Q: I’VE SUBMITTED AN ONLINE BOOKING FORM – WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
A: Once you have submitted a booking form, you should receive an automated confirmation response via email within 5 minutes of your booking. If you have not received this, try re-submitting the booking form, or give us a call on (08) 8306 6941. You can expect to hear back regarding your event within 2 weeks.
Q: I’VE BOOKED MY EVENT WITH ST JOHN AMBULANCE SA AND RECEIVED CONFIRMATION, BUT I NEED TO MAKE SOME CHANGES TO MY BOOKING.
A: For any changes to your booking, please email Events@stjohnsa.com.au or call (08) 8306 6941 as soon as possible. Please note for changes in dates or times, we will need to re-assess our volunteer availability, hence these changes need to be communicated as soon as possible.
Q: IF YOU ARE USING VOLUNTEERS, WHY DO I NEED TO PAY FOR YOUR SERVICE?
A: St John Ambulance SA uses an integrated workforce of volunteers and casual team members and our cost-recovery model helps us cover essential expenses such as uniforms, insurance, and equipment, ensuring a safe and well-equipped environment to best support your event.
