A Local Ambulance Committee is a group of dedicated volunteers who freely give their time, energy and commitment to make their community a safer place to live. There are around 180 Local Ambulance Committees in Queensland, with over 1400 volunteer members.
Local Ambulance Committees promote community participation in and awareness of ambulance services and advise local ambulance officers of community needs and expectations. They also conduct fundraising activities to purchase enhancements for the local service, such as upgrading equipment. Local Ambulance Committees also play an important role in creating safer communities, particularly through their involvement in Department of Community Safety’s community safety initiatives.
If you are part of a community organisation or are an individual wanting to know more about how you can become involved with a Queensland Ambulance Service Local Ambulance Committee please go to the Volunteer and Local Ambulance Committee Liaison Unit Contact us page.
