Paramedics move into new station

SALE paramedics have just moved into their shiny new ambulance station, settling into the new building in Cunninghame St.

They have been ferrying gear and vehicles from their temporary station since Thursday.

The station was rebuilt as part of a $20 million state government spend on six stations across the state.

The new branch has modern facilities for paramedics, including lounge areas, a kitchen, training rooms and amenities, and has garaging for four ambulance vehicles and a single response unit.

The former outdated branch was built in 1959. It was  demolished to make way for the new branch on the same site.

An official opening is expected in coming months.
