Butte County EMS Ground Ambulance
& Membership Program

Advanced Life Support ambulance

Serving residents of Butte County 24 hours a day

Butte County EMS proudly provides advanced life support pre-hospital care and transportation to the community. Butte County EMS is a joint venture between Enloe Medical Center's Emergency Services and First Responder Emergency Medical Services, Inc. Our ambulance fleet includes a bariatric ambulance outfitted with special equipment to provide comfort to patients. If you are having an emergency, dial 911.

Butte County EMS is part of the medical center's STEMI Program. Twelve-lead electrocardiogram (ECG/EKG) machines installed in the ambulances allow paramedics to record electrical activity of the heart, then transmit that information directly to emergency department physicians so that they can prepare personnel and equipment in advance. Enloe Ambulance also continues to provide service to residents of Glenn and Colusa Counties 24 hours a day.

Enloe's Long Standing History of Ambulance Service

Enloe’s ambulance service dates back to 1901 when Enloe’s founder, Dr. Newton Thomas
Enloe, created a flume log ambulance at his first hospital in West Branch, Calif. The ambulance made a 35-mile trip through mountains and canyons. Then in 1972, Enloe initiated the first EMT-1 program in the Chico area, in cooperation with Butte College, providing basic life support training for ambulance drivers and firefighters. In 1978 Enloe began its own ambulance
transport service.

If you are having an emergency, dial 911.
