CHICO, Calif. - Chico Unified School sites are getting portable trauma kits after a $3,500 donation.

With a donation made by Golden Valley Bank, the district was able to purchase 165 emergency medical kits.

The Chico Fire Department will work with school sites to provide "Stop the Bleed" training.

"One of those tools I hope I never have to use, but should the occasion occur we will be grateful we have state of the art supplies," said Superintendent Kelly Staley.

"I want to thank Golden Valley Dank CEO and President Mark Francis. It's very important to have these in our schools and for school safety," said Police Chief Mike O'Brien.

The training program began in April 2013 after the first active shooter tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

The first weekend of autumn was pleasant for northern California, but our relatively tranquil weather will change soon. A Pacific storm is approaching the West Coast, and it will bring our area rain showers and gusty wind soon.
