Noarlunga Ambulance Station
12 September 2016
A new $5.3 million fit-for-purpose ambulance station in Noarlunga has been opened in a major boost to the growing southern suburbs.
As the new regional headquarters for the south and the largest station in South Australia, the station will provide an additional 24/7 emergency crew, house up to 13 ambulances and five light fleet vehicles.
The central location will lead to improved response times, with easy access to Beach Road, the Southern Expressway, Dyson and Main South Road.
50 operational and administrative staff will operate from the state of the art building, which includes training and study facilities, ergonomic work stations, a kitchen and crew room, 12 individual rest rooms, bike storage and car parking.
The Noarlunga Ambulance station is located opposite Noarlunga Hospital between Beach Road and Alexander Kelly Drive in Noarlunga.
Over $16 million is being invested in SA Ambulance Service under Transforming Health, which will increase metropolitan paramedic and support staff by approximately 72 FTE, and add 12 extra ambulances to the metropolitan fleet.
As part of Transforming Health, plans for the new Noarlunga station were expanded to allow for additional staff.
