From the California Conservation Corps
The California Conservation Corps continues its fire response efforts, with 411 corpsmembers — 31 crews — assisting Cal Fire and the U.S. Forest Service throughout the state.
The largest contingent is on the Lodge Fire in Mendocino County. In Southern California, CCC crews are providing logistical support on the Tecolote Fire in the Angeles National Forest. Corpsmembers are also working on seven other wildfires. The crews are from 18 CCC locations throughout California and are providing both logistical support and initial attack on the firelines.
The CCC, one of the state’s premier emergency response forces, has provided more than 100,000 hours of fire response work on 45 different fires since July 1. Crews from every CCC center have been called out.
