National Guard and Wildfires

For nearly 20 years, CAL Fire has helped train Cal Guard members to attack wildland fires, an issue which each year destroys homes, claims lives, and burns hundreds of thousands of acres of forestry across the state.

Last year, the California Guard played a vital role in assisting state and local officials in firefighting.

At the height of fire season in October, some 2,500 troops were deployed to aid in firefighting and relief the efforts.
