Town Of Moraga

Staff Visits French Fire Command Post

The Town’s Administrative Services Director, Stephanie Hom, spent 24 continuous hours at the Incident Command Post for the French Fire in the Sierra National Forest in August. The wildfire response lasted 13 days, involved 1,800 firefighters, burned 13,835 acres, and cost $19.3 million. Fortunately, there was no loss of life or destruction of residences. The visit was an opportunity to gain first-hand experience and training in the national response system for natural disasters. The Town extends many thanks to Dennis Rein of Moraga-Orinda Fire District for making it possible and for his consistent support in helping the Town become better prepared to respond to an emergency.
