Last year, volunteers from the service, along with the Welsh ambulance Service and South Wales Police, treated 110 people for intoxication, head wounds, lacerations and other ailments.
St John Wales staff will be working through the night in Cardiff, Bridgend, Barry and Blaenau Gwent.
In Cardiff, Ebenezer Church Hall on Charles Street will become an Alcohol Treatment Centre and a mobile first-aid post will be set up on Greyfriars Road. Two St John ambulances and a minibus will also be providing support in the city centre.
St John volunteers will be on standby at Barry Fire Station and triage centres will be set up in Bridgend town centre and Ebbw Vale Hospital to alleviate pressures on the NHS.
The triage centres will also be in operation on Saturday December 22 and New Year's Eve.
