In the last three months, St John Ambulance has responded to over 670 emergencies within the Moresby North West electorate. Over 500 of these incidents have occurred in Morata.

Despite the work it does in responding to emergencies in communities, one of its crew was attacked on Tuesday morning, May 7th, at Morata Two, where officers were robbed, assaulted and later dragged out of the bus by a group of heavily intoxicated men.
