Our 111 ambulance communications centres in Auckland and Christchurch post information on incidents attended by St John Ambulance at @StJohnAlerts on Twitter.

The best way to keep up to date on incidents St John Ambulance has attended is by following our media alerts Twitter account. Each tweet contains a link to stjohn.org.nz where expanded information will be posted when available. 

If your enquiry is not posted @StJohnAlerts, please call the St John communications team on 0800 756 334 (SJ MEDIA) or email media@stjohn.org.nz.

These are monitored from Monday to Sunday from 7.00am - 7.00pm including on public holidays.

After hours, calls to the 0800 media line will provide the caller with the option of reaching the ambulance communications centres.

A reminder, patient privacy limits the depth of information St John can provide to the media.

St John can provide the following information in its Twitter media alerts and to media who inquire via the media line and email address:

• Time of incident/emergency 111 call

• Type of incident (motor vehicle, water, medical etc.)

• General location but not the specific address

• Number of patients

• Status of patient/s

• Which medical facility the patient is transported to.
