  • NEAS colleagues move into brand-new tri-station

    6th June 2024

    This week, North East Ambulance Service colleagues join Tyne and Wear Fire Rescue Service and Northumbria Police. Crews moved into the newly operational carbon-neutral community Tri-Station on Campbell Park Road, Hebburn and began their first shifts at the new site.

    Around 40 members of NEAS staff including paramedics, a clinical team leader and locality manager, three ambulance vehicles and one clinical team leader car will be doing their first shifts across the week.

    Louise Norris, Locality Manager at NEAS said: “We are all very excited to move into this brand-new station and it’s great to be able to see the shared facilities in place for staff. It’s also a chance to work closely with our colleagues and build relationships as a collaborative emergency service.

    “The brand-new station is a fantastic asset to the community and the way we will respond to patients. I’m looking forward to moving the team over and working with our new blue light partners in the near future.”

    The Hebburn Community Tri-Station, a flagship project for the region, is being developed by Esh Construction. Designed with a focus on sustainability, collaboration and the community, this state-of-the-art combined emergency service centre is set to be the first of its kind in the UK to be completely carbon neutral.

    The site includes ground source heat pumps, electric vehicle charging (EV) points, a wildflower meadow to support local biodiversity and ‘E’ cycle storage and charging facilities.

    The new Hebburn Community Tri-Station is located between Marine Drive and Campbell Park Road in Hebburn, South Tyneside, and has replaced the existing fire station on Victoria Road West.
