A brand new ambulance station in Bridgewater opened recently as part of a program to increase the amount of regional ambulance facilities. The new $2.6 million Bridgewater Ambulance Station was officially opened by the Premier and Minister for Health, Jeremy Rockliff, and attended by Hon. Mark Shelton MP. It will boost how quickly crews can respond to emergencies. The new, contemporary ambulance station is at 70 Cowle Road, Bridgewater.
At the launch Premier Rockcliff said, “This new station is a major asset to the hard working, dedicated crews who care for this community. This state-ofthe-art four-bay ambulance station includes training room facilities, improved amenities, and improved infection control measures.” The new station was funded through the Tasmanian Government’s Statewide Rural Hospital and Ambulance Station Upgrade Fund. “This new station will significantly improve Ambulance Tasmania’s response capability in Bridgewater and surrounding suburbs,” Premier Rockcliff said.
In attendance at the launch were Deputy Mayor, Barbara Curran, Cr Tennille Murtagh, Cr John McMaster, Brighton Council General Manager James Dryburgh and Director, Governance & Regulatory Services, Janine Banks.
