The local Bungendore community came together to officially open the town’s first ambulance station on Friday 1 November.
The new station on King Street will enable local NSW Ambulance paramedics to better meet the current and future needs of the region.
The new station boasts internal parking for up to three emergency vehicles and relief accommodation for staff, ensuring an emergency service for the communities of Bungendore, Bywong, Wamboin and surrounds.
The community champion behind the petition calling for the station, Deborah Olde, joined in on the celebrations to mark the official opening.
From the sod turn early this year, it has been a fast build for the Ambulance Station, which includes; Internal parking for up to three emergency ambulance vehicles, a delivery and loading bay, relief quarters and amenities, staff parking, administration and office areas and logistics and storage areas.
The first two paramedics have already started work at the station.
The Bungendore NSW Ambulance Station is part of the NSW Government’s $122 million Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration Program.
