Volunteer information

Volunteers may be used in a variety of ways in SCAS, but the following are the most frequent volunteering opportunities available.  

  • Community First Responders (CFR’s) – individuals who volunteer to provide a limited emergency response in their communities helping us to respond to patients more quickly than we may be able to otherwise. 
  • Volunteer Car Drivers (VCD’s) – supporting the transport of mobile patients to and from hospital appointments. 
  • SCAS Charity Volunteers – individuals who volunteer to help with any aspect of the charities activities
