ALL CORPSMEMBERS FLOOD-TRAINED, READY FOR WINTER

Members of the CCC from every location throughout the state are trained and ready for whatever winter brings.

Crews have sharpened their floodfighting skills, including proper sandbagging techniques, the construction of various sandbag structures, and the placement of protective plastic along levees to prevent erosion through wash-wash action.

The CCC has been called out on nearly every major flood or storm since the Corps was established in 1976. Since that time, corpsmembers have filled more than 3.5 million sandbags.
