The young women and men of the Corps work hard protecting and restoring California’s environment and responding to disasters, becoming stronger workers, citizens and individuals through their service.

California wildfires. The largest contingent is on the Sherpa Fire in Santa
Barbara County, where six crews are assisting with both firefighting and logistical
support at the fire camp. Those crews
are from Camarillo, Los Angeles, Pomona, San Luis Obispo and Santa Maria.
Two San Diego crews are assisting at the fire camp for the
Border Fire in San Diego County and crews from Chico and Fortuna have been working
