HORSHAM’S new ambulance station will open its doors to the community on Monday.
The new station, at 42 Urquhart Street, Horsham, will be open from 4.30pm to 5.30pm.
Acting Horsham team manager John Kelly will receive a 20-year long service award and Warracknabeal paramedic Mandy Bryce will receive awards for 10 years of service and 10 years of safe driving at a ceremony at 4.45pm.
Ambulance Victoria chief executive officer Greg Sassella said the staff service award presentations were an important event, allowing staff and their families to get together in a social atmosphere and recognise the extraordinary efforts from the paramedics.
“Events like this are important in recognising the staff members for their committed service and dedication to not only Ambulance Victoria, but the wider community,” he said.
Wimmera group manager Sandy Kahn said there was a high level of interest from the community in the new branch so it was important for them to see the facilities in their area.
CPR and first aid demonstrations will also be on show by paramedics.
Paramedics moved into the new station on May 22.
The new $2.6-million station includes five individual rest rooms, a large staff recreation room and private outdoor area, training and meeting room, staff carpark, separate female and male toilets, a large unisex locker room, several offices and storage rooms and a garage to accommodate eight ambulances.
