~A Time For Giving~

November 15, 2019

This Thanksgiving Sierra Frontier Medical Resources has lots of reasons to be grateful. Our skilled paramedic Marty Creel is back on the Downieville ambulance responding to calls throughout western Sierra County. The Paramedic Project is a reality thanks to generous donations from individuals and community organizations.

This financial support has also permitted SFMR to sponsor classes for Emergency Medical Responders, Emergency Medical Technicians, and Advanced Emergency Medical Technicians.  Local dedication to Emergency Medical Services has grown exponentially and we appreciate the many volunteers that donate their time and talent to help their neighbors.   

SFMR continues to explore ways to guarantee the annual revenue of $100,000 needed to provide the current level of emergency and advanced life-support services.  We recently solicited community input at town hall meetings in Sierra City and Downieville, and we intend to develop a feasible plan for ongoing funding. 

In the meantime, we seek donations for much-needed transitional funding.  Any support you can give will be appreciated.
