Getting prepared for wildfire is a year-round endeavor. The California Conservation Corps helps do this by removing and reducing the fuel for wildfires.

This winter, CCC Ukiah Corpsmembers helped reinforce fire roads and prepare for controlled burns by reducing vegetation in an area of Sonoma County prone to intense and devastating wildfires.

It’s just one of the many ways the CCC is helping reduce the threat and impact of wildfires.
