In September 2017, an artist’s impression was unveiled and first sod turned for the new Molong NSW Ambulance Station, part of the $122 million Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration (RAIR) program.
Construction of the new NSW Ambulance station is expected to be completed in late 2018. It includes an internal wash bay, administration office, a logistics and storage area and parking bays for up to three emergency ambulance vehicles to meet projected patient demand.
NSW Ambulance Deputy Director Operations Western Sector, John Stonestreet, welcomed the latest milestone in the delivery of the station.
“Designed with input from local paramedics, the new station will greatly enhance their ability to deliver high-quality mobile emergency medical care to patients in the community for decades to come," Chief Superintendent Stonestreet said.
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 22 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.
