Community Service programs (Medical First Responders, Therapy Dogs, Cadets, and Car Seat Technicians) are provided at no charge to the community but rely on donations to keep the programs running. St. John Amublance does not receive government funding and all Community Services are provided by volunteers who give of their time for their community. Making a donation when you benefit from St. John Ambulance services is a great way to show your appreciation to the volunteers and helps ensure they have the training, equipment and resources necessary to give back to the community.

St John Ambulance's Medical First Response Services provides trained and equipped volunteers to respond to any medical or traumatic emergencies that may occur during a community event. The volunteers often establish a medical post upon arrival at the event and operate as the situation dictates.
A youth cadet program is available at the St Catharines location. Cadets meet one evening a week from September through May. Emphasis on safety and First Aid training.
The Therapy Dog program provides therapeutic visitations to people who are confined to institutions such as nursing homes, long-term care facilities, and hospitals across Niagara. The Therapy Dogs provide unconditional love, intimacy, social interaction, companionship, motivation and stress reduction to every facility they visit. In addition to their weekly visits, the members and their dogs often participate in various displays, presentations, and parades. All prospective members must attend a mandatory pre-test seminar and soon thereafter, the dogs and members are tested by certified St John Ambulance Provincial Therapy Dog evaluators to ensure that they have a sound temperament.
As well, St John Ambulance has launched a "Paws 4 Stories" program. This is one that encourages the reluctant reader to sit with a therapy dog and read without judgment.
Any persons interested in adding a therapy dog visit to their facilities program, an informative presentation or in becoming a member can contact the office.
Car Seat Technicians: St. John Ambulance provides certified Car Seat Technicians who install and evaluate the safe installation of infant/child car seats and boosters. A properly installed car seat increases survival rates of children by as much as 70%.
In addition to the training site at 219 Church St, St Catharines, The Lincoln County Branch operates a training centre at 77 Division Street in Welland at the Holy Trinity Anglican Church. To register for courses being held in Welland contact the Lincoln County Branch or email to email@example.com
