HISTORY OF St John Ambulance Malaysia (SJAM) Background
SJAM is part of a global St. John Ambulance, with its rich history that dates back to more than 900 years in Jerusalem, when the Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of St John of Jerusalem (Order of St John) was established to render care for the sick and poor in a hospice. The Order then spread to other parts of the world with the formation of its first overseas division in Dunedin, New Zealand.
During the 20th century, the movement saw significant expansion and was established in every part of the Commonwealth. The primary aim of the organisation is to provide aid to the suffering. Like in many countries, we are one of the main providers of frontline ambulance services via the national emergency call number 999.
Establishment in Malaysia
St. John Ambulance started in Malaya in 1908 by a group of doctors who served in the Colonial Medical Service in the Federated Malay States (FMS) and Straits Settlements, namely Capt. Dr. John Sutton Webster (Singapore), Dr. Richard Desmond Fitzgerald (Johore) and Mr. Arthur Mitchell Goodman (Kuala Lumpur) were the pioneers of St. John Ambulance activities.
From our humble beginning in the medical services of the British Armed Forces and the then Federated Malay States' Railways, SJA Brigade men and women, through the British Medical Auxiliary Services (MAS), rendered humanitarian aid and relief to the casualties during the World War II in Malaya and Singapore.
When the Japanese invaded Malaya on 8 December 1941, bombs were dropped unto civilian population. SJA Brigade members rose to the occasion and were involved in the first aid and air defence exercise via the Field Ambulance Units of the British Army. Many other SJA Brigade members who served in the battle of Singapore lost their lives for the ‘Service of Mankind’. History acknowledges that St. John Ambulance was the only voluntary organisation in Malaya that rendered medical aid before and during the Second World War.
The return of the British after the end of the Second World War has resulted in the re-organisation of many institutions and that contributed to the expansion of SJA Brigade and SJA Association (SJAA) to all States by 1959.In order to strengthen the operations of SJAA and SJAB after the formation of Malaysia in 1963, the Government of Malaysia had decided to amalgamate both of this bodies in Malaya, Sabah and Sarawak into one corporation to be known as the St. John Ambulance of Malaysia (SJAM). This was made possible with the passing of the St. John Ambulance of Malaysia (Incorporation) Act, 1972 by the Federal Parliament. The Royal Assent was granted on 23 March 1972. Hence, the birth of SJAM in Malaysia was established.
