A St John ambulance staffer says she feared paramedics would be sitting ducks if she sent them to the scene of the Christchurch terror attacks.

The inquest into the 51 deaths resulting from the mosque attacks continues in front of deputy chief coroner Brigette Windley.

The St John dispatcher told the inquiry she didn't know where the shooter was and she feared for paramedics' safety.

Anna Sargent was in court.
