Plumas National Forest firefighters get ready for a long fire season

Thursday, June 18, 2015 — Firefighting forces from the Plumas National Forest are ramped up and ready for what might be a long and challenging fire season.
    “We are fully operational and ready for the season,” said Chris French, acting Plumas National Forest supervisor. “In addition to our local federal firefighters, we have contracts in place with our community fire departments, private fire crews/engines and many other firefighting resources.”
    The forest has close to 250 permanent and temporary firefighters (almost half the workforce) including 14 engines/crews, three 20-person hand crews (two of which are Type 1 hotshot crews), three bulldozers, two water tenders (trucks) and a Type 2 helicopter.

Grants and loans division changes location

Thursday, June 18, 2015 —The oversight and responsibility of the county’s grants and loans division has been moved from the department of planning and building services to the health and social services department.
    The transition will allow a better fit as services provided by both the Community Development Block Grant programs and the health and social services department are connected.
    According to county administrative officer Richard Egan, the changes stem from the board of supervisors’ direction to move away from the business lending side and toward other activities under the program such as housing assistance, which fits much better under the health and social services department.
