How to become a volunteer?
The great thing about becoming a volunteer for the Queensland Ambulance Service is that there is a role for everyone - you can be young or young at heart, super-fit, of average health or have a disability.
Volunteering is rewarding. You can learn new skills and help make your community a safer place to live.
Things to consider when becoming a volunteer include:
- where you live;
- how much time you can offer;
- how much training you are prepared to undertake; and
- the special requirements of the volunteer position.
Please note that a criminal history check may be undertaken on current and prospective volunteers to ensure that the Queensland Ambulance Service maintains the highest standards of personal integrity in the delivery of services to the Queensland community.
For more information about becoming a Queensland Ambulance Service volunteer in your area, please telephone the Queensland Government contact centre on 1300 369 003.
