Permanent placement of an ambulance and paramedic at Rainbow Beach

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Jennifer Parkhurst
1/11 Double Island Drive

Total Signatures - 1408

Sponsoring Member: The Clerk of the Parliament

Posting Date: 7/05/2014

Tabled Date: 7/05/2014

Responded By: Hon Lawrence Springborg MP on 5/06/2014

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

The petition of residents of Queensland draws to the attention of the House the dangers of not having an ambulance permanently stationed in Rainbow Beach. Not having an ambulance in Rainbow Beach is a massive deficit in the care of the local community. Health and safety of our residents should be a priority for our local government. There are many people in Rainbow who suffer from diabetes, or other life-threatening complaints, who would be much safer if they knew an ambulance was only 5 minutes away, instead of at least 30.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to act urgently to facilitate the permanent placement of an ambulance and paramedic at Rainbow Beach.
