The new ambulance station forms part of the NSW Government’s $122 million Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration (RAIR
) program, helping local paramedics better meet regional emergency medical care needs well into the future.
To date, 24 upgraded, rebuilt or new regional and rural ambulance stations have been announced under the RAIR program, including completed stations at Wagga Wagga, Coolamon, Ardlethan, Harden, Molong, Griffith, Kiama, Berry, Bay and Basin, Toukley, Wauchope, Hamlyn Terrace, Bathurst, Pottsville, Rutherford and Bungendore.
These exciting RAIR projects represent the biggest regional and rural transformation of NSW Ambulance infrastructure in the organisation’s history.
