New Online Sub Centre Directory

Post by AussieFreelancer » Fri Feb 08, 2008 12:36 pm

Hi All, this is my first post, I have been looking out for a forum like this for some time, as my dad is a volunteer ambulance here in Waroona, and I have been developing their website for them, so it is great to see what the current issues, discussions, etc are regarding the ambos in WA.

Firstly this is not just an advert for advertising sake, I will be having a look around these boards each day, and I plan to participate in discussions, and add some fresh blood to this community :)

That said, I have just finished redeveloping the Waroona ambulance website, and one of the features that we have included is a Sub Centre directory, as there didn't seem to be one around.

The aim of this is to provide people all around WA with a quick, easy to navigate, searchable list of sub centres, which will then provide you with all the information you need, such as email address, phone number, physical address, etc.

Currently there are over 140 subcentres in our database, with varying details for each. It would be great to build this into a definitive list of up to date information, and I am hoping that with your help, we can do just that :D

So if you have a spare few minutes, and fancy helping out, you can take a look at www.waroonaambulance.com.au/subcentres then search for the sub centre that you know the details of. If there are any chages required, perhaps you could post them here and I will get them sorted?

Thanks people, and I look forward to checking out these boards some more over the coming days, weeks, year, etc :D

Hi welcome aboard :)

I have seen waroona at T/A's before on the notoriuos stretch off road from mandurah to bunbury and assisted at one early last year.

Only thing i need to say is that i do understand they are volunteers and without vollies w.a would bite the big one in the country areas.

BUT reflective vests should be worn day or night while at an accident :) just saves them from being road kill by those ignornant drievrs speeding past at 100klms like they do.

yeah that is a really bad stretch of road, chances are you were helping out with my dad then as he has done a few on that stretch in his time with waroona (over 10 years)

i agree with you totally though, safety first, I will point that out to them ;)

haha no idea :D dont forget to check for any inaccuracies :D We had this feature on the old site, but it wasnt very complete or user friendly, but still it was the most visited part of the site, so it does get used, which makes it a good idea to have it correct :) if everyone checks the details of the subcentre near them, then we should have that definitive list in no time :D

Hi Patrick, welcome aboard.

I just had a look at your site, looks very good and informative, i like the local touch.

You might want to check up on Beverley Sub Centre info, i believe it moved from Vincent St. years ago when it shared a shed with the VBFB and i think its now located near the Hospital on Forrest Rd.

Keep up the good work mate, the country folk will really appreciate it.

hi westernwedgy, I will have a look at that. So you say it is there? Or you are just pretty sure? The problem has been actually finding out this information, as there seems to be nowhere that really has it. Most subcentres dont seem to advertise their address details etc, seems to be just a phone number, if that.

Markmywords, there sure will be. There are a lot of new features to come, and they will be added over the next few months, photos will be one of them most likely. It has been a nice project really, I guess because of the personal interest, but it is also an area that seems to be lacking - rural sja websites, so has been quite good to be able to get something informative up there and trying to think of features that would be useful to a lot of people, outside of just the "waroona" side to the site.

I can confirm what he is saying. The firies also moved onto Forrest Road. Below is a pic I posted before of the new subcentre.

awesome :D from looking at the photo of the place, and google maps, it looks like the building is actually on the corner of John st and Sewel st, so this is what I have put it as - without a number i need the closest intersection really, as if i just put a road in google picks the middle of the thing, which could be miles away :)

thanks people, looks like that one is sorted now :D I'm glad I found this site :) have been looking for something like this for over a year now.
