TOUKLEY AMBULANCE STATION COMPLETE
Today construction on the new NSW Ambulance station at Toukley was announced as completed.
The new NSW Ambulance station at Toukley includes:
- Internal parking for up to four emergency ambulance vehicles;
- Administration and office areas;
- Staff amenities;
- Logistics and storage areas;
- Internal wash bay;
- Staff parking
Health Infrastructure and NSW Ambulance will now begin the carefully planned internal works and fit out and then operational commissioning of the station.
This is before a staged roll-out of services which will ensure the ongoing delivery of high-quality emergency care during the transition and relocation from the current temporary station to the new station.
Designed with input from local paramedics, the station will enable NSW Ambulance to better meet the mobile emergency care needs of Toukley and surrounds for years to come.
The station is scheduled to become fully operational early to mid-2019.
The RAIR program currently includes 23 locations across the state that will benefit from an upgraded, rebuilt or entirely new ambulance station including completed stations at Wagga Wagga, Coolamon, Ardlethan, Harden, Molong, Griffith, Kiama, Berry and Bay & Basin.
The RAIR program represents the biggest regional and rural transformation of NSW Ambulance infrastructure in the organisation’s history.
