Branch starts to take shape

The Tatura Guardian - - Community -

Tatura’s first am­bu­lance branch is start­ing to take shape at the Casey St con­struc­tion site, Tatura.

The branch is part of a statewide $500 mil­lion plan to em­ploy 450 more paramedics, buy new ve­hi­cles, build more sta­tions and cut re­sponse times across Vic­to­ria.

The gov­ern­ment ini­tia­tive aims to pro­vide Tatura lo­cals with ac­cess to quicker re­sponses when faced with life-threat­en­ing emer­gen­cies.

The new state-of-the-art branch 24/7 home base will give paramedics safe and mod­ern fa­cil­i­ties and is ex­pected to be com­pleted by mid next year.
