About Wellington Free Ambulance
We are the one and only paramedic service for Wellington and the Wairarapa, and the only ones in the country who are free.
We are proud of the place we hold in our community, and the high-quality, leading-edge patient care that our people deliver every day. As well as emergency paramedic care, we provide patient transfer services; have paramedics who are part of the Life Flight crew and rescue squad, plus operate the 111 clinical communications centre for our region. We respond on average to around 57,000 emergency incidents per year.
We consider ourselves to be the best little ambulance service in the world, with an awesome team around 400 staff and over 80 volunteers. Being this size means when you join you do become part of our family and you really do make a huge impact for our community!
