Operating Internationally, GoodSAM (Good Smartphone Activated Medics) is the world’s most advanced emergency alerting platform. The app allows alerters to dial the emergency services, and at the same time notify nearby medically qualified responders of a medical emergency. By alerting responders of an emergency, GoodSAM connects those in need with those who have the skills to provide critical help before the emergency services arrive.
Whose life might you save today? Calling all responders.
The difference early CPR and defibrillation makes can be crucial – that’s where you come in. If you are trained in first aid, download the GoodSAM Responder App today. You’ll then be alerted when you are in the immediate vicinity of a cardiac arrest, so that you can start CPR or basic first aid in the critical minutes before the emergency services arrive. The GoodSAM platform is highly governed and secure, with checks to ensure that all Responders are medically qualified. Once verified, you’ll join our network of community lifesavers.
Good Samaritan acts are what the world is about
- Helps the person in need
- Gives you a purpose in life!
- And it’s great for society
There are already over 150 GoodSAM Responders in our group, and we are constantly looking to register more Community First Responders every day.

What are Ambulance Victoria doing?
In collaboration with GoodSAM, Ambulance Victoria have already engaged their community of 1,100 trusted responders (mainly off-duty paramedics) that can be alerted to nearby cases of cardiac arrest, whilst the closest available ambulance, and in some areas firefighters, are also responded. Ambulance Victoria know that for every minute defibrillation is delayed, the chance of survival decreases by around 10%.
This initiative, in conjunction with Ambulance Victoria’s Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Registry, aims to increase the provision of CPR and defibrillation prior to the arrival of emergency services by utilising nearby trained & trusted volunteers and registered publicly accessible defibrillators.
This model has been successfully implemented overseas in locations including London and parts of the UK.
Since you are acting as a Good Samaritan and being alerted to an unexpected emergency, we think it’s important that you have access to purchasing your own Automated External Defibrillator (AED) at the lowest cost possible. That’s why we are offering the SCHILLER FRED PA-1 Defibrillator to registered EMR GoodSAM Responders at $1,000.00 off the normal RRP price!!! See our store for further details.
It’s very important to let all Victorians know that Ambulance Victoria are only using the GoodSAM Responder app. This means we still need your help to let all your friends and family know that they need to download the GoodSAM Alerter app and register.
So if they witness an medical emergency or need to get medical help quickly, they can just open the app, press the EMERGENCY (Call for Help) button and activate both Triple 0 services and their three nearest GoodSAM Responders without the delays of going through ESTA services first.
With the launch of Ambulance Victoria’s GoodSAM program in Victoria, Triple 0 now also has access to over 2,000 existing privately registered GoodSAM Responders registered in Australia including all our EMR GoodSAM Responders and alert them to their Triple 0 event.
So don’t be surprised if you receive an alert that says Ambulance Victoria needs your help!
