State Secures Federal Assistance for Multiple Wildfires

As a result of numerous large wildfires throughout the state, the Office of Governor Gavin Newsom announced this week that the state has secured fire management assistance grants (FMAGs) from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to support continued response activities.

FMAGs were secured this week for the Monument Fire in Trinity County, the Dixie Fire in Lassen County, and the Caldor Fire in El Dorado County. The Governor also proclaimed a state of emergency this week in El Dorado County due to the Caldor Fire.
