95 Years - tell us your story

Tell us your story

This year we are celebrating a significant milestone for Wellington Free Ambulance - 95 years of service to the people of Greater Wellington and Wairarapa. 

We are very proud to continue the legacy of our founder Sir Charles Norwood providing free emergency ambulance services to anyone in need. 

As we mark 95 years we are seeking stories, experiences, and reflections from our community.

If you have a story or experience of our service that you would like to tell us about, please share it with us below. 

As the only free ambulance service in New Zealand, we've been serving the community for 95 years and we would love to hear from staff, patients, volunteers, and our supporters about their thoughts on Wellington Free Ambulance. 

Thank you in anticipation!
