The NSW Government’s $232 million Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration (RAIR) program is reorganising and enhancing NSW Ambulance infrastructure to meet the future needs of communities across rural and regional NSW by:
Providing modern facilities
Tailoring each site to the needs of the local community and paramedics
Delivering infrastructure that will accommodate future challenges including population growth and an ageing population.
Following on from the success of Stage 1 of the program, the NSW Government has announced an additional $100 million to deliver upgraded, rebuilt or entirely new NSW Ambulance stations in rural and regional NSW as part of Stage 2 of the program.
The new stations are expected to provide an enhanced working environment for local paramedics, tailored to the needs of regional and rural communities to enable paramedics to continue delivering high quality care.
The RAIR program is the single largest investment in regional NSW Ambulance’s 125-year history, with 24 new or upgraded ambulance stations already delivered or under construction as part of Stage 1 with another $100 million worth of ambulance assets being delivered under Stage 2.
This program is being planned and implemented by NSW Ambulance and Health Infrastructure.
