State Secures Federal Assistance in Response to Fawn Fire in Shasta County

Governor Gavin Newsom on Thursday announced California has secured a Fire Management Assistance Grant (FMAG) from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to help ensure the availability of resources needed to contain the Fawn Fire burning in Shasta County.

The FMAG will enable local, state, and tribal agencies responding to the fire to apply for 75 percent reimbursement of eligible fire suppression costs. The program, administered through the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (CalOES), provides rapid financial assistance to communities impacted by fires.

Additional information on the FMAG is available here.
