PARADISE, Calif. - Thanks to a grant from the Butte Strong Fund, Paradise will have more medical services.

"One less thing that people are going to have to worry about when they call 9-1-1 knowing that there's going to be an ambulance service right here," Elizabeth from Paradise said.

Adventist Health said since last December there has been a 30% increase in ambulance runs for Paradise.
Right now the closest ambulance service is in Magalia.

The North Valley Community Foundation awarded a $49,000 grant to Adventist Health from its Butte Strong Fund.

That builds on a $21,000 donation by the Adventist Health Feather River Foundation.

This money helps support the funds needed for the new base station.

The EMS base station will be near the intersection of Billie and Clark Road.

"It could literally be a lifesaver for people and it's such a nice reminder you know a step towards normalcy again we really appreciate that," another resident said. 

The ambulance bill is still awaiting Governor Newsom's signature
