First to Care is the most comprehensive history written of the Order of St John in New Zealand. It unearths new information about the founding of the St John Ambulance Association in 1885, the creation of its twin arm, the St John Ambulance Brigade, in 1892, and the development of what is now one of the country's leading not-for-profit organisations. Richly illustrated with over 250 photos and illustrations, this is a readable social history that touches on many aspects of national life.
