“To have a central core hub right in the centre of our population area, that seems like a good idea…that should help improve service and response times just by the closeness to the major part of our population.”
– Burnaby Councillor, Colleen Jordan
The new Buller Ambulance Centre is located in the Royal Oak area in Burnaby at Buller Avenue and Waltham Avenue, its close proximity to Kingsway would contribute to improved emergency response times in this part of the city. The new facility would relocate and consolidate two former ambulance stations in Vancouver and New Westminster, as well as a Special Operations / Emergency Operations facility in North Delta.
The new station will accommodate approximately 25 to 30 staff and function as ambulance dispatch station for the South Burnaby area as well as the regional headquarters for catastrophic event and special operations centre serving large events in the Lower Mainland.
The building consists of a single level underground parking structure for 39 vehicles and special operations equipment, a main level with 18 emergency response ambulances with storage and restocking facilities, an upper floor with administrative offices for emergency response operations and ambulance crew rest quarters.
The two-storey facility is designed as a post-disaster building.
