Social media fuels criticism of Kaiapoi ambulance

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

Facebook continues to fuel the rumour mill surrounding Kaiapoi's emergency services, but those services warn not to believe everything you read.

St John North Canterbury territory manager Cole Gillman said the organisation was committed to ambulance operations in Kaiapoi, as well as the broader North Canterbury area.

The Hilton St station, which sits on council land, will be relocated as the land has been purchased from the council for another development.

“St John is in the final stages of negotiations with the landlord of a temporary site within Kaiapoi to base our ambulance services,” Gillman said.

“Once we have finalised negotiations, we will be in a position to inform the Kaiapoi community which continues to be very supportive of St John.

“In addition to a temporary location, St John is embarking on a broader piece of work to find a new permanent home for St John in Kaiapoi.”
