St. John Ambulance is quite active in
schools where we have about 6,000 members throughout the state. We also have about 1,000
adult members who assist at Area and State headquarters. In Kota Kinabalu and Sandakan we
provide accident and emergency services by supplementing and complementing existing
services provided by the Medical Department, Hospital, Fire Brigade and Police. In the
past we have provided the following outstanding services:
