Local corps are an integral part of California’s fire prevention and restoration efforts.
Each year, local corps crews clear thousands of acres of fire fuel. Crews are fully trained in chainsaw operations and can carefully cut shaded fuel breaks, clear unwanted vegetation, cut down hazardous trees and cut acres of grass quickly and safely. Local corps crews utilize chippers, dump trucks and pile burning to responsibly dispose of vegetation material.
After a fire, local corps are hard at work removing debris, eradicating invasive species, restoring habitat, planting vegetation, and repairing trails.
