Like other St John Ambulance volunteers, John Russell provides emergency medical care at public events across Adelaide and South Australia. But on Tuesday nights, the 20-year old cadet leader wears a different uniform to serve his community in another way. As a part-time soldier in the Army Reserve, Private Russell parades at Keswick Barracks where he is a rifleman with the 10th/27th Battalion, The Royal South Australia Regiment.
“I joined the Army Reserve because I was looking for a physical and mental challenge,” he says. “I saw it as an opportunity to further develop the attitude and skills that matter to me such as teamwork, leadership, and a strong work ethic. Along the way I have met a lot of like-minded people and developed some great friendships.”
John re-certified his senior first aid qualification with the army and brought his medical qualifications and training obtained through St. John Ambulance. To date he’s earned a Certificate II in Emergency Medical Service First Response is now working towards a Certificate III in Basic Health Care (Advanced Response) and a Certificate IV in Business (Front Line Management).
