California Conservation Corps responds to the King Fire


 

THE CCC DISPATCHES 16 CREWS TO KING FIRE

This is one of the largest contingents of California Conservation Corps crews on one fire.  Sixteen crews -- 214 corpsmembers -- are assisting the U.S. Forest Service and Cal Fire on the King Fire about 60 miles north of Sacramento.

The crews are providing both fire camp support and firefighting assistance on the wildfire.

An additional eight CCC crews are helping with logistical support at two other locations.

Since July 1, the CCC has devoted nearly 200,000 hours to fire response efforts.
