California Governor Directs State Agencies to Help Tahoe Fire Victims

Governor addresses California's high temperatures and high fire danger.

Governor Schwarzenegger, yesterday, issued an executive order directing state agencies to help Angora Wildfire victims begin picking up the pieces.

“Victims of the Angora Wildfire have suffered tremendously and we must help them overcome the devastation and restart their lives,” said Governor Schwarzenegger. “This executive order helps victims clean up and rebuild as quickly as possible by streamlining, and in some cases suspending, certain state rules regarding the removal and disposal of both hazardous and non-hazardous debris as well as dead and dying trees.

Governor Schwarzenegger has put more money into fire engines and equipment than any other governor in the state’s history, including $63 million in equipment for firefighters over the last three budgets.

In May, the Governor issued Executive Order S-07-07 directing the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) to mobilize additional personnel and equipment to respond to wildfires in California. He also directed state agencies, including the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services, California National Guard, California Conservation Corps and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to coordinate together and with federal and local agencies to maximize California’s fire prevention and fighting capabilities.

Reduce Fuel Loads

In addition, I have directed my state agencies to work with our local and federal partners in developing a plan to better facilitate the reduction in fuel loads to prevent this kind of disaster from occurring again.”

Fire Safety

Gov. Schwarzenegger also reminded Californians to take common sense precautions during fire season including:
  • Removing dead brush, branches, or other fire hazards from within 100 feet of homes.
  • Cleaning pine needles and leaves off of the roof.
  • Having an evacuation plan.

Southern California at Record Levels of Drought

“With consecutive days of high temperatures this week and Southern California seeing the driest conditions in more than a century, fire danger is extremely high all across the state,” said Governor Schwarzenegger. “Californians should be safe and cautious while celebrating the Fourth of July holiday.”
