Woy Woy’s new and expanded ambulance station has been officially opened, delivered as part of the Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration program (RAIR).
Member for Gosford, Liesl Tesch joined NSW Ambulance paramedics, their families and Central Coast community members at a ceremony to mark the official opening of the new purpose-built station.
The ambulance station will support our highly skilled paramedics as they continue to provide high quality care for the region, and provide a more comfortable working environment and improved facilities for training and development.
The new station includes internal parking for up to 10 emergency ambulance vehicles, external parking, staff common areas, administration and office areas, logistics and storage areas, a vehicle wash bay and a Medic Fit gym.
Woy Woy Ambulance Station has been fitted with a solar panel energy system and an uninterrupted power supply (UPS) battery for essential building services.
Woy Woy ambulance station replaces the existing aging station at Ettalong and will enhance emergency care for Central Coast communities now and into the future.
New ambulance stations are also planned for the Central Coast community at Kincumber, Lisarow and Berkeley Vale over coming years under the NSW Ambulance Infrastructure Program.
