The NSW Government’s $122 million Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration (RAIR) program is continuing with more milestones met during 2019. Recently, the new Pottsville ambulance station was opened. New stations in Wauchope and Bungendore have also opened.

Construction has finished at the Yass station that was built to replace the former 1950s era building, as well as the Rutherford station in the Hunter region.
Designed with input from local NSW Ambulance staff, the purpose-built infrastructure will deliver a better working environment for paramedics that is tailored to the needs of the local community.
The stations will include accompanying administration support as well as educational facilities, and relief accommodation where needed. This will enable paramedics to meet the mobile emergency care needs of rural and regional communities for years to come.
This program is being planned and implemented by NSW Ambulance and Health Infrastructure.
