New ambulance branches in Ararat, Inglewood, Karingal and Rochester are on the way

We’ve appointed builders to construct new ambulance branches in Inglewood, Karingal and Rochester. A builder has also been appointed to upgrade the Ararat ambulance branch.

This means paramedics will have the facilities and support they need to quickly respond to local emergencies.

The bigger and better branch will feature:

  • a new Mobile Intensive Care Ambulance (MICA) covered space
  • new medical and delivery storage

The Ararat ambulance branch upgrades are expected to be completed in the second half of 2022.
