Corpsmember Story: Chantal Lopez

Placer Center Corpsmember Chantal Lopez stands at the ready during the hot tool portion of Placer 1’s fire readiness drill in Nevada County in late April.

Learning to fight fire with dirt is a bit surreal, but once you get the education it all makes sense.

For CCC Placer Corpsmember Chantal Lopez, she’s getting the experience and education of a lifetime.

It’s hard work, but Chantal knows her four-foot scrape can help save acres upon acres of land and communities.

Hearing her story definitely has us feeling fire ready to grab a McLeod and make a difference.
