Nationals Member for Coffs Harbour, Gurmesh Singh, said the new Coffs Harbour Ambulance Station, officially opened in Marcia Street today, is a major boost for frontline emergency care in the region.
Mr Singh, the Shadow Minister for Tourism, Emergency Services and the North Coast, said the new station, which replaces the station at Coffs Harbour Health Campus, is a game-changer for local paramedics and signifies a new chapter in local health care delivery.
“This is a significant day for our community and for the NSW Ambulance paramedics who are settling into their new home,” Mr Singh said.
“The new state-of-the-art station was designed and tailored to the needs of our community and will enable our local paramedics to continue to deliver high-quality emergency health care across the Coffs Coast.
“I’m extremely proud to be back here for the official opening. This time last year we were turning the first sod with then Minister for Regional Health Bronnie Taylor and NSW Ambulance to mark the start of construction.”
The new ambulance station features internal parking for up to 12 emergency ambulance vehicles, relief accommodation for paramedics, an internal wash bay, administration and office areas, logistics and storage, and staff parking.
