For SJA MEMBERS, as always, you should be attending duties within your divisional area FIRST before signing up to any other scheduled duties in other areas. In order to ensure that we have proper coverage for ALL duties within your area and area's outside your divisional area, you should be communicating with your divisional duty coordinator first AS SOON AS YOU CAN CONFIRM your attendance before requesting to attend another duty out of your divisional area. This ensure's that your area's duties are covered first in case a duty had not been posted in this calendar.
Just like a regular paying job, if you have ALREADY confirmed your attendance to a duty but have to cancel last minute, please ensure that you locate a suitable qualified member to replace your duty you had confirmed and have them contact your duty coordinator. As a St. John Ambulance national policy across Canada, ALL FIRST AID DUTIES must have a minimum of TWO qualified AMFR's in order to support the public duty.
