Ambulance crews in Market Harborough have moved into their new premises at Harborough Police station in a partnership which will boost collaborative working within the area.
Following some minor improvements, the crews from the former Harborough Ambulance Station have now settled in to the new building with their police colleagues, as part of the national Blue Light Collaboration Project.
Richard Lyne, General Manager for Leicestershire at East Midlands Ambulance Service said:
“The move will enable both EMAS and Leicestershire Police to work closely together and provide an even more effective and efficient service to the community of Market Harborough and Leicestershire.
“It is such an improvement compared to the old station but will also be good for relationships being located with the police and next to the fire service in Market Harborough.”
Inspector Siobhán Gorman at Leicestershire Police said:
“We are absolutely delighted to have EMAS now working at Harborough Police Station with us – we are all a part of the Emergency services family.
“We commonly work together at a range of incidents, so having a base here locally can only cement our already good working relationship. The ‘moving in’ has gone well and we hope for a long and lasting partnership.”
