Security at the Dayboro Ambulance Station has been boosted following an infrastructure upgrade.


Member for Pine Rivers, Mr Seath Holswich, said the upgrades included replacing chain wire fencing with new 1.8m high steel fencing and installing new security and electronic access systems within the station building.


“As part of the boundary fencing upgrade we fitted new steel automatic double-gates to provide electronic proximity-card access for vehicles and repaired a log retaining wall,” Mr Holswich said.


“Entry to the station building itself is now more secure with card access to the medications storeroom and on all external doors.”


“There is also a new state-of-the-art security system throughout the building and a CCTV system inside the medical supplies store.”


Health Minister Lawrence Springborg welcomed the improved security for ambulance staff.


“We are committed to looking after our own who deliver such essential frontline services,” Mr Springborg said.


Minister for Housing and Public Works, Tim Mander, said the security upgrades delivered on the State Government’s strong plan to provide better infrastructure and improve frontline services for Queensland families.


“These upgrades will significantly improve the day-to-day working conditions and safety for crews and a consistent approach is being taken with upgrades in other ambulance stations across Queensland,” Mr Mander said.
