St. John Victims of Hurricane IRMA

Tax deductible

St. John in the United States Virgin Islands is our home. For many, it is your home away from home. As you likely are aware, hurricane IRMA is moving directly over our rock. While natural disasters capture headlines and national attention short-term, the work of recovery and rebuilding is long-term. Preparedness, vigilance and love will get us through the storm. Your donation will go directly to saving the lives of those most affected by this devastating act of nature.

St John Rescue, Inc. is an all volunteer organization dedicated to saving lives and building a better community through participation, education, and community spirit. St. John Rescue, Inc. was officially launched on November 30, 1996 when it was granted status as a 501(C)3 corporation by the United States Virgin Islands government.

We currently have 45+ all volunteer members. There are no paid positions in our organization. These dedicated local members donate valuable expertise and time to the community of St. John.

Like any small community, the many needs of St. John go beyond the capabilities of its government infrastructure. We are chartered to provide: emergency rescue and medical support services to St. John EMS, Police, Fire, National Park Service, VITEMA and DPNR. We also assist DHS, United States Coast Guard and FEMA.

St John Rescue members have specialized skills that are critical. Some of the many services we provide include but are not limited to vehicle and structure stabilization, extrication, triage, Jaws of Life, portable AED, oxygen kits and island wide communication systems. At a minimum, all responding members are Certified Emergency Medical First Responders.

Winston Churchill once famously said, “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.”
