Agencies and volunteers drill down on fire preparedness
While most Plumas County residents were enjoying a beautiful summer Sunday, others devoted their day to make everyone safer this fire season.
The county’s office of emergency services, the Plumas National Forest and the Meadow Valley Fire Department organized the largest drill ever conducted in this county. Six months of planning went into the June 1 exercise to ensure that it would yield a comprehensive opportunity to test the county’s emergency preparedness. Federal, state and local agencies worked alongside community volunteers in a drill that stretched from Meadow Valley to the county fairgrounds.
