St John Ambulance Kalbarri Volunteer Sub Centre
Project status: Completed
The new St John Ambulance Kalbarri Volunteer Sub Centre opened in March 2014 thanks to $900,000 of Royalties for Regions funding.
The new facility, built in two stages, allows St John Ambulance Western Australia to grow to meet the increased demand for services in the region.
A four bay garage was built during Stage 1 and training rooms, storerooms, office, kitchen/lounge for ambulance officers, bedrooms and toilets were added in the final development, Stage 2.
The new Sub Centre will be a facility that provides suitable amenities for:
- visiting regional paramedics, regional trainers, out of town and local volunteers for the ambulance service
- the ambulance service to be in one location
- community use in training and emergency management operations and workshops
- advancements to current operations and response times of the St John Ambulance
The building is specifically designed to accommodate for the future growth of the town, region, and sub centre requirements.
St John Ambulance has also been allocated $26.1 million in Royalties for Regions funding under a State-wide program to enhance and establish new ambulance services throughout regional Western Australia.
