Independent Member for Kiama Gareth Ward MP has announced that major works at Bomaderry Ambulance Station are almost complete thanks to a funding boost from the State Government.

Mr Ward also confirmed that the station would receive a much-needed staffing boost with 12 additional paramedics joining the Bomaderry team.

“I’m pleased to have lobbied for a $1.1 million upgrade to the Bomaderry Ambulance Station which has improved storage spaces, workspaces, recreational facilities, and car parking at the station,” Mr Ward said.

“Given the long hours ambo’s spend at these stations, it’s important we have modern and comfortable facilities that support their life-saving work.

“I’m also delighted to announce that the station will receive a boost of 12 additional paramedics which will help improve ambulance response times and reduce the pressure on our hard-working and dedicated ambo’s.

“Our paramedics do an incredible job, in often difficult and confronting circumstances, and I'm so proud of our local team who are working so hard to care for our local community in times of crisis.

“This station upgrade comes on top on other commitments I’ve made and delivered including a new ambulance station for Kiama and the new ambulance station at Berry that also came with additional paramedics.

“When I make a promise to our local community, I always get it done!

"I’m delighted to have helped deliver another terrific investment for our emergency services in our local community,” Mr Ward concluded.
