Butte County Emergency Medical Services Taking
Shape, Gearing Up for July 1 Start Date
Changes are taking place in Butte County as First Responder and Enloe Medical Center prepare to operate jointly
as Butte County EMS – the area’s exclusive 911 provider. As the July 1 start-date approaches, Butte County EMS personnel are diligently working through their approved
proposal to ensure that timelines and commitments are met. The most visible change is a new paint scheme for the ambulances. Although the look of the ambulances will change,
the public can expect the same service that they have always received.
Butte County EMS is a partnership between Enloe Medical Center and First Responder EMS, and the plan calls for the ambulances to look the same. “We have started the conversion
process. Some ambulances have been painted with the new scheme and others are still painted with First Responder’s and Enloe’s colors. We expect all ambulances to have the new
paint scheme by July 1,” states Marty Marshall, Managing Director of Butte County EMS.
Managing Director Byron Parsons also adds, “It is vitally important that the citizens of Butte County understand that Butte County EMS is a single entity and when a citizen calls
911, a Butte County EMS ambulance will get the call for service.”
