Adjournment: Craigieburn Ambulance Station
Ms SPENCE (Yuroke) (19:03:12) — (14 293) My adjournment matter is for the Minister for Ambulance Services, and the action I seek is for the minister to provide an update on the additional ambulance station that is to be built in Craigieburn. I am proud to be part of a Labor government that supports our paramedics and volunteer first responders by providing the extra resources they need to respond even faster to life-threatening medical emergencies and save more lives. I thank the minister for this investment and her hard work to deliver better ambulance services for all Victorians, including residents of the Yuroke electorate.
The department is actively working with Ambulance Victoria to progress planning for the new ambulance station in Craigieburn.
The current focus is to identify a suitable parcel of land within the target search area which will ensure the best possible ambulance service delivery to the catchment area. A number of sites have been investigated and are currently undergoing feasibility analysis.
I look forward to making an announcement regarding the new ambulance station for Craigieburn community in the near future.
Hon Jill Hennessy MP
Minister for Ambulance Services
