More ambos on the Coast

EMERGENCY Services Minister Neil Roberts yesterday announced an extra 13 ambulance officers had been allocated to serve residents in communities along Queensland’s north coast.

An area director will be based at Gympie to manage stations in the Gympie and Burnett areas and three additional regional supervisors will be appointed to enhance operations across the region.

Mr Roberts said the new officers would ensure ambulance services in the area remained at a high standard.

“It’s great news for local residents. There will soon be extra officers on the frontline providing a very valuable community service.

“Paramedics in the local community already do a terrific job and I’m sure these new officers will help them continue to provide a high level of service,” he added.

Nine extra ambulance officers have been allocated to the Sunshine Coast to establish additional shifts seven days a week. Ranks have been bolstered across the State by 75 additional officers.
