 More from the Corps ...


The  Emergency Services Branch has dispatched additional crews to the King Fire in El Dorado County, bringing our CCC total to 13 crews -- 176 corpsmembers -- from eight different locations.  Twelve of the crews are assisting with logistical support at the fire camps in Placerville and Foresthill; one Type II crew from Fortuna will be helping on the firelines as of Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the CCC has eight crews -- 109 corpsmembers -- on the Happy Camp Complex in Siskiyou County, and two Camarillo fire crews covering the Delta Cal Fire camp in Sonoma County.
That brings the CCC fire response total to 319 corpsmembers, or 22 crews.
Emergency Services' Melinda Allen and Nick Howe continue to work with Cal Fire and the U.S. Forest Service to respond to requests as needed.
