Critical Fuel Reduction Work Protects LA County Residents

Corpsmembers in uniform spaced every few feet up a windy steep hill hand off tree limbs to one another

Pomona Corpsmembers use the chain method of moving downed tree limbs and brush up a steep incline in the Bailey Canyon Wilderness Park in Sierra Madre, CA as part of a fuel reduction project.

Steep canyons. Thick brush. Hard work. But, it’s all worth it.

CCC Pomona and Los Angeles Corpsmembers spent weeks clearing 10 acres of brush along homes and in the canyons and parks of Sierra Madre, near Pasadena.

The fuel reduction work not only protects homeowners, but makes for safer access for fire crews if a wildfire approaches the city or moves into the mountains.

This project is made possible by funding through the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF).
