Preliminary work is underway for the new facility, which will be built on the existing Frontenac County Administration Campus on Battersea Road in Gelnburnie.
This will be the eighth paramedic station to serve Frontenac County and Kingston.
“This new paramedic base is the next critical step in our long-term plan to ensure Frontenac Paramedics are fully equipped to serve residents of Frontenac County and Kingston as the need for service increases in the coming years,” Frontenac County Warden Denis Doyle said.

“Building the new station on the Frontenac County Campus will help maintain response times while saving taxpayers the costs associated with buying or leasing new land.”
“This new base is just one of the many steps we’re taking to ensure that Frontenac Paramedics is staffed and equipped to meet these realities. We appreciate the support of Frontenac County Council,” Frontenac Paramedics Chief Gale Chevalier said.
