A new HSE Ambulance station is to be built at Lissenhall, Swords in North County Dublin, which will include a second full-time ambulance and a crew of eight additional ambulance personnel. That’s according to local FF senator Darragh O’ Brien.
It is understood the new ambulance crew will relocate from St. James’s Hospital ambulance base to the Lissenhall base. Senator O’ Brien said this is expected to happen in April. “This development comes as follow-on from a campaign to look for a more complete ambulance service for the North County. I met with staff there, who were working a full ambulance service, with limited resources. It means that there will now be two 24 hour ambulances, along with a new base. This is badly needed because of the huge area that needs to be covered.” O’Brien said that a second full time ambulance will also have a beneficial effect on staff at Lissenhall” he concluded.
