The vision to co-locate all of the emergency services near the Highway, at the end of Terralong Street, is now a reality, with the Kiama Ambulance Station now officially opened.
The shed-like structure has room for up to four emergency ambulance vehicles, and the adjoining building has office areas, staff facilities, a supply room and more.
Emergency calls can be answered from anywhere within the building.
“The Kiama Ambulance Station was delivered as part of the $122 million Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration (RAIR) project to enhance NSW Ambulance’s regional and rural infrastructure to meet the future needs of communities across NSW,” says Gareth Ward MP.
The Kiama Station Officer Kelvin Milne told The Bugle that initial problems with the gate have been overcome. It is understood the large gate and a raised Telstra pit in the driveway were of concern to staff.
