CCC FLOOD TRAINING THROUGHOUT THE STATE

Corpsmembers at all CCC centers are honing their floodfighting skills for the upcoming winter. They will practice proper techniques for filling sandbags, constructing sandbag walls and sack rings and learning to secure protective plastic along levees to prevent wave-wash action.

After a busy fire season, CCC crews will be ready to be dispatched within hours where needed when winter flooding occurs

Over the years, the CCC has filled more than 3.5 million sandbags on major storms throughout California.​
