Cal OES Director Secures Federal Assistance to Assist Response Agencies Battling Woolsey Fire in Ventura and Los Angeles Counties

Sacramento, CA...California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services Director Mark Ghilarducci early Friday morning secured a Fire Management Assistance Grant (FMAG) from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to help ensure the availability of vital resources to suppress the Woolsey Fire burning in Ventura and Los Angeles Counties. The FMAG also enables local, state and tribal agencies to recover eligible costs.

The fire has burned more than 7,500 acres and is threatening structures and critical infrastructure in and near the communities of Bell Canyon, Oak Park, Thousand Oaks, Simi Valley, Hidden Hills, Agoura and other local areas. The Ventura County Fire Department tweeted early Friday morning that 30,000 residents are under mandatory evacuation orders, multiple structures have been destroyed and and road closures in place. Cal OES, in working with Ventura and Los Angeles area fire departments, has mobilized multiple immediate need for strike teams and firefighters including aircraft, fire engines, dozers and water tenders.

Cal OES Fire and Southern Region personnel are currently working with other response agencies to address all emergency management, evacuation and mutual aid needs for the incident. Sustained high winds and dry weather have made ideal environment for dangerous fire conditions throughout the region.

The FEMA federal grant, which is provided through the President’s Disaster Relief Fund on cost-share basis, will assist local, state and tribal agencies responding to the fire to apply for 75-percent reimbursement of their eligible fire suppression costs.

      Seems like God is trying to get the California peoples attention thru all the fires and earthquakes every year. Apparently they just can't make the connection and keep going down the cesspool of depravity. All thanks to the liberal agenda that is in full force in this state.

      I wonder how many of the holier than thou, social justice, well off nose in the air Malibu elites will stop and pick-up a homeless person while evacuating out.

        You are the cess in the pool.

        Quit generalizing and hating and do your own part to make things better.

        How many conservatives will push the Trump administration to properly evaluate amnesty applications from impoverished Hondurans fleeing gangs and violence in their own country? I think those refugees are far more deserving of our help than homeless people in Malibu. Or at least as deserving.

    People often wonder why Conservatives are called the Right and Liberals are called the Left. Here is a foundational explanation.
    A wise man's heart is at his right hand; but a fool's heart at his left. Ecclesiastes 10:2
