The Cal Fire emergency fire camp is almost completely set up at the Redwood Acres Fairground. The camp provides a number of resources to firefighters as they come off the line of duty. Starting just this last Tuesday, numerous facilities and resources have been brought in to the redwood acres fairground to set up the Cal Fire emergency fire camp. These resources include over 500 overhead personnel that are working to put together and operate facilities. Firefighters from across the state are being brought in to help contain the six rivers lightning complex fire, some using this emergency fire camp as a place to recharge, fuel, and eat. “We have a regular full kitchen that’s set up to provide breakfast and dinners for crews that are here during those times. We have supply stations set up… Camps can have everything from laundry facilities to shower facilities, sleeping quarters,” said Jeremy Ward, the Cal Fire Battalion Chief.
