The Tamworth community will soon have a new Ambulance Station under the NSW Government’s $232 million Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration (RAIR) program.
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 the $132 million Stage 1. Another $100 million worth of ambulance assets are being delivered under Stage 2.
As the largest city in north western NSW region, Tamworth was identified as a priority location to ensure the best emergency care for all residents.
The site of the new station will be selected using tried and tested international software which maps Triple Zero (000) calls so the community can feel confident the new station will operate from the most optimal location.
The new station replaces the Marius Street station and will provide a contemporary facility for local paramedics and ensure they have the latest equipment to continue to deliver high-quality care.
The second station located in Tamworth South will remain operational. When complete, both NSW Ambulance Stations will service the communities of Tamworth.
