Construction will start later this year on a new $6.2 million ambulance station in Morayfield.
The station, at 396 Morayfield Rd but also fronting on to Lindsay Rd, will increase paramedic cover for the fast-growing region.
“There is strong population growth in the greater Caboolture area and the Queensland Government is fully aware of the need to build the infrastructure to stay ahead of this growth,” State Member for Morayfield Mark Ryan, the Minister for Fire and Emergency Services, said.
“Officers at surrounding stations in Caboolture, Narangba and Ningi do a fantastic job servicing the region.
“That high standard of care will be reinforced when the new station becomes operational, bringing additional paramedics and equipment to the district.
“We’re planning for the Morayfield Station to operate 24-hours per day and be staffed by 17 paramedics.
“It will also house the QAS District Office, a 10-bay ambulance vehicle storage area and a carport area for five non-acute QAS vehicles.
“That means more paramedics and ambulances on the road, ready to help where needed.”
Plans for the new station are now complete and tenders have been called for.
