Emergency Care Skills Our Organisation- Then Our Organisation- Now What to Wear and When Cadet Life The Future for You
Our Organisation- Then
YOU HAVE A HISTORY…. Have a quick think about your life: – Things you have done – People you have met – Things you have achieved
…. AND SO DOES ST JOHN St John has over 900 years of history So just imagine all the interesting and exciting things that make up its history All this makes St John a unique organisation and one that you should be proud to be part of
1099 The Blessed Gerard founded the Order of St John, a religious group who cared for the sick and injured Pilgrims in Jerusalem. The Hospitaller Brothers did most of the nursing and caring for the injured while the Hospitaller Sisters spent most of the time in prayer. The Hospital grew to over 2000 beds and there was still shortages so the rather than turning Pilgrims away the Hospitallers gave up their beds and slept on the floor.
The Hospitallers take on a military as Knights during the Crusades (war between the Christians and Muslims for the Holy land)
The Hospitallers come to Britain and the priory of Clerkenwell, London is founded
All Christian forces, including the Hospitallers are driven from Palestine, Jerusalum. The Orders new headquarters are located in Cyprus
During the Middle ages, the Order of St John was very rich and powerful. The Prior at the time, Robert Hales, was also part of the government as a Treasurer. The Prior introduced poll tax which was hated by the peasants leading to the revolt. The previous St John’s Gate was burnt down in 1381 during the Peasants Revolt. Also Robert Hales head was cut off The newly rebuilt St John’s Gate in London is reopened after being burnt down in the Peasants Revolt in
The Hospitallers move their headquarters to Malta. Brothers of the Order nursing in the Hospital in Malta, while doctors examine patients. From the Verdala Statutes, 1588.
King Henry VIII dissolved the Order of St John in England, taking all their land and property. This was caused by a struggle between the King and the Pope about who controlled religion
The Siege of Malta started Roughly 500 Knights and the Maltese defended the island against the large Turkish army of over 25000
Napoleon drove the Hospitallers from their headquarters in Malta After this the headquarters returned to Jerusalem, where they originally started
St John Ambulance Association was founded At the time many people worked in mines which were very dangerous places due to underground explosions, floods and collapsed tunnels. This lead to thousands of deaths and injuries every year. St John Ambulance was the first organisation to train workers in first aid so they could help each other quickly after accidents Illustration of a stretcher being used in a mining accident, 1893
St John Ambulance Brigade was formed This is when St John started to have the main role that we are familiar with today, by providing first aid cover 1.130th Field Ambulance 28th (Welsh) division, Welsh Army Corps, who served in World War One
St John Cadets were formed Since then cadets have done everything from winning the George Cross for bravery and cooking the worlds biggest sausage. Rochdale cadets in 1923, just after cadets were formed
Badgers were formed. Badgers are aged between They have a programme that covers absolutely everything, so they learn a wide range of skills that are not just first aid. Badgers work towards the SUPER BADGER AWARD

Who disbanded the Order in England? When was the St John Association formed? What important part of St John Ambulance started in 1922?
THE MEANING OF THE CROSS The cross is white is represent purity The four arms of the cross represent the four Christian virtues The eight points of the cross represent the eight beatitudes that come from practising the virtues The lions and unicorns were added to the cross in 1888, to show the British Order of St John had become a Royal order of the Chivalry

On Duty St John often attends public events to provide first aid cover, in case anybody hurts themselves or becomes ill What events do you think we cover?
On duty You may have the chance to put your first aid skills to use by treating patients (supervised by an adult) However be prepared that you may not do much first aid, it may a perfect time to do some homework or read a book as its not nice wishing people to hurt themselves! You do not have to do anything that you do not feel comfortable with – It is not always a cadets job to make tea all day! If you are worried or upset about anything on duty speak to the duty officer or any adult
On duty Remember you are representing St John when you are wearing your uniform so try to behave and be polite to people BUT Most of all enjoy yourself!
Special service shield Duty book to record hours Public duties Care activities Fundraising Training Other activities( presentation evening, guard of honour etc) Service shield awarded for 50 duty hours (It sounds lots but can be easier than you think) Silver star represents 100 hours Gold star represents 500 hours
Drill We still use drill from out military past Encourages team work and discipline Way to move quickly and orderly from one place to another Smart for ceremonial occasions It can be fun, don’t think of it as a punishment
Saluting In past times, the right hand was raised to show there were no weapons in the persons hand and that they were friendly In modern times, it is commonly used as a mark of respect especially to officers
Cadet Life What first aid courses can you do? What different groups could make up a division? What rank is above cadet corporal? Who is your regional youth officer? Give four points to remember when you go on duty How many hours does it take to get your first service award? If a cadet had two gold stars and two silver stars on there service shield how many duty hours would they have done? What is the origin of saluting? Who is your regional commissioner?
What to Wear and When
Why do we wear a uniform? To make us easily recognisable To make us look smart To help us stand out from the crowd on duty To give us a professional image
Badges other people may have 900 th anniversary of the Order of St John (only issued to members in 1999) 90 th anniversary of the Priory of Wales (only issued to members in 2008)

Other epaulettes NURSEDOCTOR
Jewellery You may love your jewellery, but what would you feel like if you lost it on duty? What about if your necklace were accidentally grabbed by a casualty? Or your ear rings got caught on things? What if your rings tore your protective gloves getting you covered in blood? The best way is to leave your jewellery at home However, you are allowed to wear: A watch A wedding ring (hopefully none of you have these!!) Jewellery for medical reasons (such as MediAlert bracelets) Remember this is for your own safety
Additional uniform Although our uniform is quite distinctive, we some times need to be more recognisable to the general public on duty to identify us as first aiders. This could be when we are on duty outdoors or in crowded places. We normally do this by wear high visibility clothing. You should have a reflective badge on the front and back saying Adults some times wear different badges to show their skills
St John Uniform Why do we wear a uniform? How would you recognise a doctor in St John uniform? Where on your jumper does the membership award badge go? How would you recognise a cadet sergeant? Where might you need to wear a high visibility jacket?
