  • Paradise Rotary Donates SCBA’s to Fire Department

    (Paradise, CA) 21 September, 2016) — The Rotary Club of Paradise has purchased 4 new self contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) for the Paradise Fire Department. The club is holding a public lunch meeting, Sept 29, 12 noon at the Downtown Park to mark the event . The new breathing apparatus, which cost over $24,000, are used by firefighters in hazardous environments where the air is too hot and or dangerous for the firefighters to breath, such as structural fires, vehicle and wildfires.

     

    Local Rotarians found that many of the SCBA units our firefighters use were out of date and did not meet today’s standards.

     

    Paradise Major Jody Jones and spouse of Rotarian Ron Jones commented “The safety of our firefighter’s is critical as they risk their lives to save our homes.  It is our responsibility to provide them with the equipment they need to do the job.”

     

    Although the Town had updated as many as they could afford  there was still a need for several more to replace old ones and equip the new fire engine purchased with Measure C funds from a recent sales tax increase. The club members saw the need and took action.

     

    The club applied for and received a grant from Rotary District 5160 and Rotary International for $8,500 and along with donations from  Paradise Interact Club, The Willows Rotary Club, The Town of Paradise, and generous local donors matched the over $12,000 in grants and donations to purchase the critical devices.

     

     “ As President of Paradise Rotary I am so pleased and excited that we are able to help our firefighters and our community by purchasing 4 SCBA units with the help of Rotary District 5160 and local contributors and, of course, our own Rotary club.” Trudi Angel,  Paradise Rotary President

     

    The Club raised their portion through local fund raisers such as the  upcoming “Steak and Lobster Affair” Oct 15th, at the Paradise Senior Center and the Paradise Rotary Crab Feed scheduled for Jan 28th, 2017.

     

    The Club is holding a presentation ceremony on Sept. 29, 12 noon at the Downtown Paradise Park, across from the Police Station. The event is open to the public with free hot dogs, chips and drinks. On hand will be Community Leaders, Paradise Fire Department staff, Rotarians and the town’s new fire engine will be on display.

     

    Come celebrate as your community’s firefighters get another tool to keep our town safe from fire.

    Bus Stop Photo

     

    Paradise students who ride the bus will find newly repaired and painted bus stops when school reopens. With help from their friends, the Paradise Rotary club has cleaned, repaired and painted 14 local bus stops. The Lions club installed the bus stops years ago and contributed funds for the service project. In partnership with local organizations like the Paradise Irrigation District and Pacific Gas & Electric, PG&E and PID helped prepare the bus stops by hosing down the bus stops using their water trucks.

     

    Paradise students also got involved.  The Ridgeview Rangers, a group of students from Ridgeview High School dedicated to community service, and The Paradise Interact Club (Rotary Club for High School Students) helped repaint the bus stop shelters.

     

    Rotarian Bob Di Pietro, who led the Rotary effort said that the project couldn’t have been achieved without the help of the community. The Rotary Club of Paradise meets every Thursday, noon at “The Place”  the Paradise Lutheran Church next to Terry Ashe Park.
