GoodSAM Responders

GoodSAM responders

As a health professional, emergency services worker or first aider, you’re trained to respond in an emergency. Being part of the GoodSAM community gives you another opportunity to be ready to save a life.

GoodSAM responders are appropriately trained and qualified people who have been verified by Ambulance Victoria or the organisation you work with to become a trusted responder.

Ambulance Victoria paramedics, along with members from our partner organisations such as off-duty firefighters, lifesavers and health professionals registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) can all register as trusted responders today.

To become a trusted GoodSAM responder, download the GoodSAM Responder app from the app store on your Smartphone.


It’s important to know that in Victoria we are only using the GoodSAM Responder app. You might see the GoodSAM ‘Alerter’ app available on the app store – however this is only used in areas where established emergency services do not exist.
