The CCC's Emergency Services Branch has dispatched 23 crews -- 300 corpsmembers -- to six different wildfires throughout the state. The crews are assisting both Cal Fire and the U.S. Forest Service, and providing initial attack as well as logistical support.
The fires include the King Fire near Pollock Pines, the Boles Fire near Weed and the Silverado Fire in the Cleveland National Forest. Crews continue to provide assistance on the long-burning Happy Camp Complex Fire in Siskiyou County.
The crews come from CCC locations in Auburn, Camarillo, Chico, Fortuna, Greenwood, Lake Tahoe, Pomona, Sacramento, San Diego, San Luis Obispo, Stockton, Ukiah, Vista and Watsonville.
