MOUNT WAVERLEY AMBULANCE STATION

Mr FREGON (Mount Waverley) (3609)

My adjournment matter is for the Premier. The action I seek is for the Premier to come to my electorate of Mount Waverley and join me in visiting our newly constructed, cutting-edge ambulance station.

As soon as we can do those sort of things again, of course.

I was excited to announce in December 2019 that building works had started on our new station as part of the Andrews Labor government’s record $1 billion investment to deliver more paramedics, more vehicles and more stations.

As we all know, in an emergency our paramedics provide world-class care to the people of Victoria. But in order to provide the best care they need a high quality workplace and the right equipment.

This state-of-the-art ambulance facility will make a huge difference for our local paramedics, who were previously operating out of Oakleigh South station. It also gives my local community peace of mind, knowing that if and when an emergency strikes, help will now be just around the corner.

The local Mount Waverley community and I would be delighted to have the Premier on deck to meet our fantastic paramedics. I’d also like to thank the Premier and the Minister for Health and Minister for Ambulance Services for their continued support of our district.
