Ambo service plea

Nagambie group still waiting on options to bring ambulance to town

A PLEA by a Nagambie action group seems to have fallen on deaf ears, as members continue their campaign for a permanent ambulance service for the district.

The Nagambie Ambulance Service Community Alliance (NASCA) wrote to the new State Government after the election, requesting assistance in their fight.

Three months later the group has still not received a response from either Minister for Health and Ambulance Services Jill Hennessy or Premier Daniel Andrews.

NASCA member and Nagambie Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) volunteer Craig Stewart said he was very disappointed in the lack of support from Labor.

“The previous government promised $2.1 million would go towards upgrading the CERT program and employ two paramedics for the area,” he said.

The proposal made by the National Party prior to the change of government would have been worked out with Ambulance Victoria, Nagambie Healthcare and Strathbogie Shire Council.
