Earlier this month we reported back to you after meeting with the Director of Control Division. During the meeting, we wanted an additional board and DCCO to assist cope with the workload in SyCC. As an immediate measure, we also wanted to reduce the enormous workload of the South Board by having 2 stations (Drummoyne and Marrickville) moved to the East Board.
Late last week, NSW Ambulance announced that they would be taking on APA (NSW)’s recommendation and moving the 2 stations.
This is a victory not only for common sense and the individuals in SyCC, but also for the community who have avoided what could have been a disaster waiting to happen. It is also worth acknowledging the bravery of those in SyCC who have spoken out over the past few weeks to ensure their voices are heard and who have advocated strongly for the change.
APA (NSW) will continue to advocate for extra resources in SyCC including an additional board and DCCO.
