Construction of Coolamon’s first ever NSW Ambulance station is well underway.
The main works are scheduled for completion during the second half of 2017. A carefully planned fit-out and commissioning process will be carried out following completion of construction before staff transition into the new station.
The new station is being built on the Corner of Devlin and Wallace Streets in Coolamon on land generously donated by Coolamon Council.
The Coolamon NSW Ambulance station will include:
• Parking bays for up to two ambulance vehicles to ensure our infrastructure is ready to meet projected patient demand increases over the next decade and beyond
• Administration, office area and amenities
• On site staff parking
• A logistics and storage area
• An external wash bay.
NSW Ambulance is improving infrastructure across regional and rural areas to ensure we continue to enhance the high quality emergency medical care delivered to your community now and into the future.
The NSW Government’s $122 million Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration (RAIR) program currently includes 17 locations across the state that will benefit from an upgraded, rebuilt or entirely new ambulance station.
We receive a Triple Zero (000) call every 28 seconds on average, with demand on resources expected to change as our population shifts and ages. In response we are embarking on the biggest regional and rural transformation of infrastructure and service delivery models in our history.
Designed with input from local NSW Ambulance staff, the purpose-built infrastructure will deliver a better working environment for paramedics that is tailored to the needs of your community. The stations will include accompanying administration support as well as educational, fleet and relief accommodation where needed.
We are enabling our paramedics to meet the mobile emergency care needs of rural and regional communities for years to come.
