46 New Ambulance South Australia $6.4 million Investment

$6.4 million for South Australia Ambulance Service.

Minister for Health and Wellbeing, Stephen Wade, announced new ambulances for SA, each costing around $140,000 – would help deliver life-saving patient outcomes while complementing the dozen new high-tech ‘SPRINT’ vehicles which will reduce response times.

“The Marshall Liberal Government is focussed on boosting patient services and this investment in a new state-of-the-art ambulance fleet is one of the many ways we are delivering that for all South Australians,” Minister Wade said.

Many residents of South Australia have been asking which ambulance stations will benefit from the recent $6.4 million investment in ambulance fleet upgrades.

Keep an eye out across SA for the new Mercedes-Benz VS30 Sprinter at Port Pirie, Port Lincoln, Loxton, Berri, Port Augusta, the Barossa, Yankalilla, Penola, Cleve, Minlaton, Kingscote, Riverton, Mannum, Hamley Bridge, Tailem Bend, Robe, Moonta, Pinnaroo, Cummins, Goolwa and Coonalpyn.

Murray Bridge and Mount Gambier can double their excitement, with each station benefiting from TWO new ambulances! 🚑🚑

In the metropolitan area, fleet will initially head for Parafield, Noarlunga, Seaford, Redwood Park, Fulham, Ashford, Campbelltown, Prospect, Glengowrie and Parkside.

Crews in Penola and Yankalilla were absolutely delighted to be the first to receive their new wheels – Cleve you’re next up, with the full roll-out of the 46 ambulances to be complete by August 2020.
