Fire Crew Readiness Exercise

San Andreas, CA…California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) Tuolumne-Calaveras Unit (TCU) will be conducting crew readiness drills for the 2024 fire season on May 8th and 9th, 2024. This year crews from Tuolumne Rancheria Fire Department, California Conservation Corps – Delta Center, Baseline Fire Center, and Vallecito Fire Center will participate.

Crews will be required to perform events which include tool and personnel protection equipment inspections, line construction, crew hike and fire shelter deployment to evaluate their preparedness for the 2024 fire season. These drills are essential to gauge the readiness of the Unit Crews for the upcoming fire season and will qualify them for fire assignments.

Continued coordination of drills and ongoing training between CAL FIRE TCU and Tuolumne Rancheria Fire Department will further strengthen the relationship between the two departments, guaranteeing elevated service for all communities within TCU and throughout the State.

Crew exercises will take place near the Camp Seco Staging Area (Sandretto Rd x Campo Seco Rd, Valley Springs) between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. each day.
