THE state government announced plans for a new ambulance station in Moe, with construction set to commence next month.
Health Minister Martin Foley on Tuesday said May Constructions Pty Ltd has been appointed to construct the new Moe Ambulance Station at 24 Narracan Drive.
The new branch will feature a five-bay garage for ambulances, areas including four bedrooms for hard-working paramedics to rest and
recuperate, training facilities, a fully equipped kitchen and improved security and car parking to make sure paramedics are safe.
The location of the new branch on Narracan Drive allows ease of access to main roads and major sites including schools, shopping precincts and community facilities.
This serves as part of the state government’s investment into the Ambulance Victoria program to support ambulance response times, employ more paramedics, buy new vehicles and build more stations across the state.
The Victorian Budget 2021/22 has invested more than $759 million in funding for more paramedics, more triage care and support staff for Ambulance Victoria, as well as targeted funding to improve flow in the state’s busy emergency departments.
The state government said since 2015 it has invested close to $250 million to upgrade and rebuild ambulance stations to provide better working conditions for paramedics and ensure lifesaving emergency care.
Labor Member for Eastern Victoria Harriet Shing said this serves as another important addition to the Moe community.
“The new ambulance station for Moe is another important part of our commitment to giving communities across the Latrobe Valley the best lifesaving emergency care and services, now – and into the future,” Ms Shing said.
