The young women and men of the Corps work hard protecting and restoring California’s environment and responding to disasters, becoming stronger workers, citizens and individuals through their service.
Members of the CCC from every location throughout the state are
trained and ready for whatever winter brings.
Crews have sharpened their floodfighting skills, including proper sandbagging
techniques, the construction of various sandbag structures, and the placement
of protective plastic along levees to prevent erosion through wash-wash action.
The CCC has been called out on nearly every major flood or
storm since the Corps was established in 1976. Since that time, corpsmembers
have filled more than 3.5 million sandbags.
