In September 2016, RCD began facilitating installation of a Fuel Break under the Glenn County Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) in western Glenn County.
In partnership with CAL FIRE, CAL FIRE Valley View Camp crews worked along County Road 306 from the Tehama County line to the Colusa County line in western Glenn County to install the Fuel Break. They installed a 4 to 6 foot wide Fuel Break, which was a scrape using hand tools. Our agreement with them was to work only in the County and CAL TRANS right-of-way (not private property), for up to 70 days until March 2018.
It is our goal to maintain this Fuel Break for fire prevention and to protect resources as we see more wildfires each summer in northern California.
