The origins of the St. John Ambulance date back over 900 years to Jerusalem. In the 19th century, around 400 years after Henry VIII ended the medieval Priory, a determined group set up the British Order of St. John to care for the sick in the Hospitalet tradition and the suffering of workers was one of their main concerns. The movement quickly spread to Britain's overseas colonies including Singapore.
In 1935, Dr. J.S. Webster,O.St.J. a radiologist with the Medical Services of the General Hospital, Singapore organized First Aid lectures in Singapore with a few public-spirited friends and brother doctors. The first headquarters was located one desk in Radiology Department of the General Hospital, Outram Road, Singapore. After Dr. Webster himself left Singapore on retirement, the Director of the Medical Services, Singapore, was prevailed upon to take over the responsibility of Director of the St. John Ambulance Association, Singapore, and he very generously transferred headquarters to his Board Room, which was on the 4th floor of Fullerton Building, Singapore.
In September 1938 sufficient number of First Aiders was recruited to form the first division of the uniformed body of the Brigade. Before the outbreak of war in Malaya, the Government incorporated all St. John personnel to form the nucleus of the Medical Auxiliary Service which was part of the Passive Defense Services of Singapore and Malaya. A transport Section was formed, and 28 First Aid Posts were organized and manned in the city.
In October 1969, a Sub-Centre of the St. John Ambulance Association was formed in the industrialized area of Singapore. With the assistance of the West Area of the Brigade, this Sub-Centre gives lectures in First Aid and Home Nursing to many factory workers. It is now known as Jurong Centre.
In June 1978, the Brigade was reorganized and upgraded to National Headquarters level. This brought our organisation status at par with St. John Ambulance organizations in other independent nations. The Brigade was structured into 4 Districts and 10 Areas. In 1996, the Brigade was again re-structured. The District level was removed, and the Brigade became simply structured into 10 Zones.
Today, the St. John of Singapore continues with its work for suffering humanity and it assists the Republic of Singapore whenever called upon in all emergencies such as epidemics, clinic and hospital duties, the St. John Ambulances also carry the sick and needy whenever requested. Brigade officers and members provided first-aid coverage at National, public and other events.Is a This is the most recent project of ours. St. John Singapore
