The following provides a list of the staff that have worked with Colac's Ambulance service from
it's very beginning in 1924 when the Service was run by the Hospital until
2008 under the body of Rural Ambulance Victoria.

In 2008 the Colac Station became a full time 24 hour station with 13 staff full-time staff.  The Ambulance Community Officer  (ACO) program
was also ceased with remain ACOs being terminated, ending a long community involvement. Staff turnover is so
frequent that it is no longer possible to keep records of staff stationed at Colac with most
staff now longer from the local community, but travelling from Geelong.
