California Secures Federal Assistance to Support Response to Dixie Fire in Butte and Plumas Counties

Sacramento, CA...Governor Gavin Newsom today announced that California has 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 Dixie Fire burning in Butte and Plumas Counties.




The FMAG, which is provided through the President’s Disaster Relief Fund on a cost-share basis, will enable local, state and tribal agencies responding to the fire to apply for 75-percent reimbursement of their eligible fire suppression costs. The program, which is administered through the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES), provides rapid financial assistance to communities impacted by fires.

The Dixie Fire has burned 59,984 acres, forcing evacuations in the communities along the Feather River Canyon including Pulga and Belden.

Currently, 2,409 fire personnel are assigned to combat the Dixie Fire along with 141 engines, 63 hand crews, 49 bulldozers and 23 helicopters. Plumas and Butte counties’ Emergency Operations Centers have been activated and Cal OES staff are on site to support local agencies as they respond to the emergency.

The incident is being managed in a unified command with CAL FIRE Butte Unit in partnership with the United States Forest Service.

Governor Gavin Newsom Failed Californians
Unaffordable housing. Record homelessness. Rising crime. Failing schools. Independent contractors thrown out of work. Exploding pension debt. And now, a locked down population while the prisons are emptied. Hold Gavin Newsom accountable. Gavin Newsom must go.
VOTE YES to RECALL Gavin Newsom and here is why: Gavin Newsom’s policies are bad for California, bad for business, and he is soft on crime. Since taking office the problems facing us have grown and his policies have only made them worse. Everywhere you look, Gavin Newsom’s failures of are obvious. For the first time in history California population declined businesses closed, corporations left and a congressional seat was lost as a result. REBUILD the California, VOTE YES to RECALL Gavin Newsom.

Governor Newsom is soft on crime. He signed SB 145 referred to as the “Pedophile Bill” into law. His mass release of prisoners have led to a spike in crime, increased homelessness and the deterioration of our great state. Californians pay the highest cost of living, the highest taxes of any state. Yet crime is soaring, electricity is unreliable, our roads are crumbling, our water supply is insufficient, water is rationed, and the mismanaged forests are burning. To make things worse he released many of the CDC fire crews, cut their budget and closed CDC fire camps. NOW he is closing Susanville State Prison, where fire crews were housed, eliminating a valuable resource and crippling the local economy. Gavin Newsom misled the people and lied about forest land cleared for fire prevention as California enters a dangerous fire season.

VOTE YES to RECALL Gavin Newsom.

Under Gavin Newsom our public schools have failed, California was ranked 37th, K – 12 nationwide and our kids have lost a year plus of vital learning. He removed the teacher’s authority to maintain discipline in the classroom and imposed the controversial sexual education curriculum.

VOTE YES to RECALL Gavin Newsom.

During 2021 Newsom’s Employment Development Department paid est. $31 billion tax dollars in fraudulent claims! He misused our gas tax money for purposes not intended and held those funds hostage to force state housing requirements on local municipalities. He now seeks to take local zoning away from cities and impose state mandates upon them through AB 9 and 10.

He kept people from attending church, closed schools, supported open borders and the mass release of criminals while he closed our state and shut down the economy. Newsom is bad for California.

VOTE YES to RECALL Gavin Newsom

We saw an increase of 6.8% in homelessness between 2019 and 2020, the largest increase of any state in that time frame. California has the highest level of functional poverty in the U.S., Slightly more than 36 percent of California’s residents are at or near the poverty level, more than one third of its population. Gavin Newsom and the elite are getting richer while the average Californian is getting poorer. We cannot afford another 17 months of Gavin Newsom.

This is a groundswell movement (Of THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE AND FOR THE PEOPLE!). Citizens from all walks of life, the entire political spectrum, every ethnicity, culture and race support this recall.

VOTE YES to RECALL Gavin Newsom.

    It’s Happening!

    Governor Gavin Newsom failed at his job and destroyed the lives and businesses of too many hardworking Californians. Thanks to over 2 million California citizens who signed our recall petition … it is finally happening. Tell your friends. Tell your family. Save the date!
