New Paramedic Services Building

As part of the 2019 Business Plan, the Township of Russell are constructing a new paramedic services building at 371 New York Central Avenue. 

The new 7,000 square-foot building is a $2.2 million dollar project in the Embrun commercial park. The new paramedic building’s design includes four vehicle bays.

As part of the Township’s Strategic Plan to build new infrastructure, this new station will help accommodate the building needs for both the United Counties of Prescott and Russell (UCPR) and the Township of Russell. The new station will assist the UCPR Paramedic Services to grow their fleet and modernize their infrastructure to respond to their 6% annual increase in calls and demand for services.

The Township will be entering in a 20-year lease agreement with the UCPR for the new building. The UCPR Paramedic Services are expected to begin their occupancy at the new station in the spring of next year.

Bourgon Construction Ltd will undertake the construction of the new station. Colliers Project Leaders, who also are also leading the building design, will supervise the project.
