Frontline emergency care boost in North Coast town of Old Bar

Frontline emergency care across the Mid-North Coast is set to receive a significant boost with the official opening of the brand new Old Bar Ambulance Station.
Labor Spokesperson for Myall Lakes Emily Suvaal, was joined by NSW Ambulance paramedics, local families, and community members to mark the milestone event.
It will provide paramedics with modern facilities and equipment as they continue to provide high quality emergency care throughout the Mid-North Coast, now and into the future.
The purpose-built facility includes internal parking for up to four emergency ambulance vehicles, staff common areas, accommodation, and rest facilities for paramedics, administration and office areas, logistics and storage areas, and a vehicle wash bay.
The new ambulance station provides a more comfortable working environment for paramedics, and is tailored to the needs of the local community in Old Bar and the surrounding areas.
The Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration (RAIR) program is the largest investment in regional NSW Ambulance’s almost 130-year history, with 54 new, rebuilt or upgraded ambulance stations being delivered in rural and regional NSW, to support the delivery of enhanced out-of-hospital emergency medical care to the community.
