Ground broken on ambulance center in South Whitehall

SOUTH WHITEHALL TWP., Pa. - Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett was in Lehigh County on Thursday to help break ground on a multi-million dollar ambulance center.

The 68,000 square foot facility is being built at Broadway and Parkway roads in South Whitehall Township.

It will be the future home of the Cetronia Ambulance Corps, the Lehigh County coroner's office and Cetronia's communications center.

The project is expected to cost about $8 million, with $1.7 million of that money coming from a state grant.      

"This building is a symbol. It is a symbol of how state, how county, how local government can work together to provide for public safety, and the people of Cetronia and Lehigh County are essential to keeping the public safe," Corbett said.

Pa. Sen. Pat Browne, R-Lehigh, Monroe and Northampton counties., and Pa. Rep. Ryan Mackenzie, R-Berks/Lehigh counties, were also on hand for the ground-breaking.

The new center is scheduled to open next spring.
