 More from the Corps ...


The California Conservation Corps has 44 crews from throughout the state dispatched to wildfires, a total of 569 corpsmembers. This is the largest number of CCC crews working on fires at one time in 2016.

This includes six crews on the Clayton Fire in Lake County and 16 crews on the Soberanes Fire in Monterey County. Other fires include the Pilot Fire in San Bernardino County, the Horseshoe Fire in Mono County, the Pony Fire in Siskiyou County, the Chimney Fire in San Luis Obispo County and the Mineral Fire in Fresno County.

The crews are providing both initial attack on the fire lines as well as logistical support at the fire camps, working for both Cal Fire and the U.S. Forest Service.

Corpsmembers are young men and women between the ages of 18 and 25 who sign up for year of outdoor work and emergency response. New corpsmembers join every month.
