The government and Labor continue to argue over ambulance services in Tasmania.
Labor member for Prosser Jane Howlett was at the Dodges Ferry Ambulance Station on Sunday where three new paramedics are being recruited this year.
Ms Howlett said three new paramedics also would be employed at Bicheno, Deloraine and St Helens this year, as part of the government's plan to boost ambulance resources across Tasmania.
"This is excellent for rural and regional Tasmania," she said.
"The government is committed to continuing to boost ambulance services and support our hardworking volunteers."
Ms Howlett said the extra paramedics would help improve responsiveness, reduce fatigue and support volunteers who were "so important"..
However, Labor's health spokeswoman Sarah Lovell said the government's $450 million budget cuts would push the ambulance system to breaking point.
She said the government had left "Tasmanian communities with little or no ambulance coverage and ignoring desperate pleas from hard-working paramedics".
"In the election campaign the Liberals promised 42 new regionals paramedics, but 16 months later they have employed just one," Ms Lovell said.
"Last week we heard from desperate paramedics how an ambulance from Mowbray had to do a 400km round trip to Bridgewater just to cover the area."
