On Wednesday, Governor Gavin Newsom announced California has secured a Fire Management Assistance Grant (FMAG) from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to ensure the availability of resources to address the Alisal Fire in Santa Barbara County. The FMAG received by the state enables local, state, and tribal agencies responding to the fire to apply for 75-percent reimbursement of eligible fire suppression costs.
