Griffith Ambulance Station nears completion
It was announced today that main works have been completed at the new Griffith Ambulance Station, with the carefully managed fit-out and operational commissioning phase to get underway shortly.
Located on the corner of Wakaden and Crossing Streets, the new station will enable local NSW Ambulance paramedics to better meet the current and future patient demand for emergency medical care in Griffith and surrounds.
Designed with input from local paramedics, the station will enable NSW Ambulance to better meet the mobile emergency care needs of Griffith and surrounds for years to come.
NSW Ambulance Murrumbidgee Zone Manager Liesa Huggins said to date, 23 upgraded, rebuilt or new regional and rural ambulance stations have been announced under the RAIR program, including constructed stations at Wagga Wagga, Coolamon, Ardlethan, Harden and Molong.
Ms Huggins said this represents the biggest regional and rural transformation of NSW Ambulance infrastructure in the organisation’s history.
The new Griffith NSW Ambulance station includes:
- Parking bays for up to eight ambulance vehicles
- Administration and office area
- Logistics and storage area
- Training / meeting room
- Fleet maintenance area
- On site staff parking
- An external vehicle wash bay
The station is scheduled to become fully operational in late 2018.
