NEW PURPOSE-BUILT NSW AMBULANCE STATIONS FOR COWRA AND COOTAMUNDRA
It was announced today two new NSW Ambulance stations will be built for the communities of Cowra and Cootamundra.
The new purpose-built stations will enable local NSW Ambulance paramedics to better meet the current and future emergency mobile care needs of Cowra and Cootamundra.
The two new stations will feature facilities that are a major improvement on the current 38-year-old station on the corner of Shelly Street and Grenfell Road in Cowra, and the 60-year-old station on Parker Street in Cootamundra.
The NSW Government is investing in purpose-built and modern NSW Ambulance stations to help our highly trained paramedics be in the right place, at the right time.
The new stations are part of the NSW Government’s $122 million Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration (RAIR) program, which represents the biggest regional and rural transformation of NSW Ambulance infrastructure in the organisation’s history.
The RAIR program currently includes 22 locations across the state that will benefit from an upgraded, rebuilt or entirely new ambulance station including Coolamon, Ardlethan, Harden and Grenfell.
Designed with input from local NSW Ambulance staff, the purpose-built infrastructure will deliver a better working environment for paramedics tailored to the needs of local communities.
