City Moves Forward on New Ambulance Facility

HONOLULU (KHNL) -- The City plans to build a new $2.1 million Emergency Medical Services facility on Young Street, near the corner of Keaaumoku Street.

The facility will house two ambulances and an EMS District Chief and will replace two temporary trailers.

Mayor Hannemann said he is very grateful to the state Legislature for agreeing to fund this project.

"We're very pleased to move forward with this important safety initiative," said Hannemann.  "This project will improve public safety by providing a sturdy home for these crucial vehicles and key personnel."

Construction is expected to begin in mid-August.
