Being A Member
SJAM-SDE is one of the most active voluntary and youth organization in the State of Selangor. Our members carry out first aid and home nursing duties in any public events and private functions in ensuring all the activities are injury-free. We are also one of the active and updated St. John Ambulance units nationwide. Through rigorous training and re-examinations, our cadets and adult members are in touch with the latest first aid and basic life saving techniques in accordance to international standards.
To date, we have total membership stands at 4,422 but unfortunately most are inactive. The core of our memberships are cadets between the age of 12 and 19 and school-going students. These cadets join one of our many divisions and begin the first aid instructional training and other youth development programmes. Some members continue their service to the adult level and are trained to handle emergency medical assistance and advanced first aid.
One good point and privilege of being SJAM-SDE members and officers is the insurance coverage. State Headquarters bought a blanket insurance coverage on top of the National Headquarters insurance which is very much under insured:
Upon death/permanent disable : RM 100,000
Medical coverage : RM 10,000
