New base for Gisborne paramedics

Victorian Minister for Ambulance Services, Mary-Anne Thomas, has joined Gisborne paramedics to inspect their newly complete state-of-the-art home base which features modern amenities, and enhanced safety, security, and capabilities.

The new facility includes a four-bay garage for ambulances, four rest and recline areas for paramedics to recuperate, training facilities, a fully equipped kitchen, car parking, and improved security to make sure crews are safe right around the clock.

“Our paramedics are the very best of us – we know our community relies on their expertise when faced with a health emergency, making the bigger and better Gisborne Ambulance Station all the more important,” said Minister Thomas.

“The new station will give our local paramedics the modern, fit-for-purpose workplace they deserve, while ensuring they have the best facilities to continue doing what they do best – save lives.”

Delivered by the Victorian Health Building Authority, the new station is one of 15 new or refurbished stations being delivered across regional Victoria, with paramedics in towns such as Euroa, Avoca, and Paynesville to soon operate from safer, more modern home bases.
