Last Tuesday Minister for Health and Ambulance Services Cameron Dick and Queensland Ambulance Service Commissioner Russell Bowles officially opened the new Miriam Vale Ambulance Station.
The station will be an important asset to the community and will provide a better delivery of healthcare to that part of the region.
Facilities at the new station include an office, a garage to fit two ambulances, treatment room and relief quarters for staff, who began operations their last month.
The station and crew will be servicing a 120km stretch of the Bruce Highway, with car accidents between Miriam Vale and Gin Gin expected to be their main charge.
The new station is a much needed upgrade, with paramedics stationed in Miriam vale formerly sharing offices with the Queensland police in the area.
Member for Gladstone Glenn Butcher, Mayor Matt Burnett and Councillor PJ Sobhanian were all in attendance last week for the official opening.
