PARADISE, Calif. - The Town of Paradise announced Tuesday Paradise Police Chief Eric Reinbold has been selected as the 2020 Red Cross Humanitarian Philanthropist of the Year.

The American Red Cross Northern California Coastal Region will present Chief Reinbold with the award during its annual Gala on Wednesday, March 24. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s event will be virtual.

This award recognizes individuals who inspire their community through their commitment to philanthropy, service and leadership, according to the Town's news release. During the 2018 Camp Fire, town leaders said, the actions, determination and courage of Chief Reinbold and his force saved lives, and since then have bolstered the town’s recovery. 

Reinbold was born and raised in Paradise. He was sworn in as the Chief of Police in September 2018.

"Through the ongoing Herculean effort of rebuilding Paradise, Reinbold has been steadfast in his commitment to nurturing growth and prosperity," town leaders said. "The Red Cross is grateful for his efforts then and now, and is proud to present him with the Humanitarian Philanthropist of the Year award."

The Red Cross Gala, traditionally held in San Francisco, is a volunteer-led fundraiser that celebrates the organization’s lifesaving mission in the Northern California Coastal Region.

Gusty winds and very dry conditions will drive high fire danger across northern California on Thursday. We'll also end up much cooler on Thursday afternoon. Lighter winds, hotter temperatures, and more widespread impacts to air quality are ahead for Friday and Saturday.
