The Indian Valley clinic and old hospital survived in Greenville, but the Care Flight/PDH ambulance crew quarters on Hot Springs Road was lost to the Dixie Fire last week.
Care Flight Operations Manager Matt Brown wants to reassure everyone that despite the loss of its crew housing, Care Flight and PDH are committed to providing emergency care to those still in Indian Valley and for those that will return when it is safe to do so.
“We plan on operating out of Taylorsville for the foreseeable future and are making arrangements for short-term and longer-term quarters,” Brown said. Due to the current lack of power, water and amenities for the crews, they will be rotating between Taylorsville and Quincy, spending 12 hours a day in Taylorsville and nights in Quincy. “Once we have a return of the infrastructure, we will be there for 24 hours a day as before,” he said.
Brown added that Care Flight is devastated by the loss that friends, colleagues and neighbors are experiencing. “A number of our own employees have also lost everything to this disaster,” he said. “We will continue to provide the best service we can and stand by, ready to help rebuild these great communities that we serve.”
