Internet Access
The community of Trinity Center has the option of wireless access from Velocity Communications, DSL or dial-up from TDS Telecom, cellular Internet from Verizon Wireless, or satellite.

Other communities have access to dial-up, satellite, and, in some locations, cellular.

Various satellite vendors, not a complete list:

Cell phones
Verizon and Sprint 4G cell coverage is very good in the immediate Trinity Center area. Coverage in other areas and on the lake varies. There is essentially no coverage in Coffee Creek.

AT&T and T-Mobile service currently is not available in the North Lake area.

Fire and Medical Services

  • Whom do I call in an emergency?
    Call 911
  • Where is the nearest hospital?
  • Do I have local fire coverage?

    In the North Lake Area, you are likely a resident of the Trinity Center Community Services District or the Coffee Creek Volunteer Fire District.

Trinity Center Volunteer Fire Department
The Trinity Center Volunteer Fire Department is a volunteer organization that provides fire, rescue, and emergency medical services to the residents of the Trinity Center Community Services District.

Coffee Creek Volunteer Fire District
The Coffee Creek Volunteer Fire District is a volunteer organization that provides fire, rescue, and emergency medical services to the residents of the Coffee Creek Volunteer Fire District.

Trinity Hospital
Located in Weaverville, Trinity Hospital, operated by the Mountain Communities Healthcare District, is our local hospital and offers skilled staff to handle most emergency and medical needs. It provides 24-hour emergency room services with a physician on duty at all times.

In November 2011, a ballot measure passed renewing the Mountain Communities Healthcare District annual $118-per-parcel property fee to fund the Hospital District for five years.

Trinity Health Clinic
Co-located with the Trinity Hospital is the Trinity Health Clinic. The clinic offers walk-in service, and is your best choice for non-emergency health services. See their website for hours.

Ambulance Service
Ambulance service is provided by the Coffee Creek and Trinity Center VFDs. When service is required to transport a patient outside our area, the patient is transported via Air Ambulance, TCLS, or our own ambulance services depending on the situation. TCLS, the Trinity County Life Support service, is based in Weaverville and will respond to our area to assist our own ambulance services when needed. Our ambulances will occasionally transfer a patient to a TCLS ambulance for transport to Weaverville Hospital.

Ambulance services are typically very expensive and many insurance plans do not cover the cost of the ambulance service. The Coffee Creek and Trinity Center VFDs do not charge for emergency transport. TCLS, however, does charge to cover the cost of running a larger service with paid medical staff. TCLS offers their low-cost LSA (Life Support Association) program to provide members with assurance that tranport costs will be covered. See the TCLS website for membership information.

Air Ambulance
A substantial number of medical emergency patients are air lifted from Trinity Center airport to Redding. Two air ambulance companies serve the north Trinity Lake area: PHI Air Medical and REACH. Both services offer membership that will greatly reduce the cost of an emergency flight. PHI and REACH rotate their coverage of our area. If you spend time in our area throughout the year, it is highly recommended that you join both services.
