Cal EMA Emergency Services Coordinators At Work The Power House Fire

When flames raced across land and homes in the Los Angeles Area May 30 and continued to burn for days, Cal EMA emergency service coordinators  were among some of our  California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) members who were called upon to help. 

The fire consumed more than 30,000 acres and destroyed at least 30 homes.  Cal EMA emergency management professionals assisted with the resources as the fire raged and now that the flames are out, Cal EMA emergency service coordinators are assessing the damage. 

"This is a very important process to help home and business owners who, in some cases, lost everything" said CSLEA President Alan Barcelona.  "Our CSLEA members within Cal EMA travel the state and, when necessary, the country,  to help before, during and after emergencies.  They are true emergency management pros."

Disaster recovery specialists toured the area affected by the fire to verify the damage to homes and businesses.  It is at the point, they can advise on assistance from agencies to help fire victims recover and rebuild.
