Ambulance Crews of Butte County EMS

Raised by 203 people in 2 months

Butte County EMS is an ambulance service operated by Byron Parsons, First Responder EMS, a CAA member.  They operate in Butte County, including Chico and Paradise.  Paradise in particular has been devastated by the Camp Fire (November 2018).  25 employees/families of the ambulance company have lost their homes, cars, and possessions (everything) due to the fire.

The California Ambulance Association (CAA) is concerned about our brothers and sisters at Butte County EMS/First Responder.  We want to help them! Can you join in and contribute?

Let’s help them out.  Starting over is going to be difficult, but we can ease this struggle with a donation. If we can raise a few thousand dollars for each affected employee to assist them finding alternative living and transportation arrangements and funds to “start over”, it will give those folks a leg up and help them stay in the area and continue to be employed and care for their families.

Good morning,
Last Friday with your help we made Christmas happen for all of the kids that were affected by the fire! We were able to give out presents and parents came in to stuff stockings. Everyone is so thankful for the little extra help that has been coming in from the GoFundMe as well.

Paradise has opened all areas to residents and people are starting to soft through what is left of their homes. Thank you for your continued help to decrease a little stress in the families as they work in rebuilding a new normal.

Hello, I wanted to update everyone following the campaign. I am Melody Brown, and I am the Health and Safety Officer for Butte County EMS. I want to first thank everyone for their gracious donations. This is going to help all of the families that have been affected by the Camp Fire. As of today, we have 28 employees that have lost their homes and 8 that are displaced secondary to evacuations. All of our people are accounted for and are doing alright. These donations will be dispersed evenly, so that families can start to rebuild their lives. Most of them had no warning and lost everything. I appreciate all of the help and support that has been coming in.
