Butte County EMS proudly provides advanced 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.

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.
