The call for better emergency services in Helensburgh continues with Heathcote Labour candidate Maryanne Stuart taking up the fight.
She’s held a community meeting to hear resident’s concerns about safety and their fears regarding crime and emergency health care.
“Long-time residents recalled a police officer living on-site in town, with a fully staffed local ambulance station,” says Maryanne. “But those days are gone.
“One resident spoke of feeling vulnerable regarding a domestic situation,
“At a time of significant population growth, it’s enormously unfair and unreasonable to expect emergency services to be stretched or cut.”
For now, Maryanne advises all residents contact Police and log all incidents. “Ask for an event/incident number and follow it up with the Police.
“Our NSW Police are doing the best they can, with the resources they have. The incidents logged and those statistics will help me, help you with your delivery of services.”
Maryanne has also started a petition calling on the NSW Minister for Policing and Minister for Emergency Services to review the policing and ambulance services in Helensburgh as a matter of urgency.
“Anything less is just an insult,” she says.
