We wrapped up the first phase of our California Wildfire Relief Program in mid December 2021 but we have committed to supporting the communities affected by the 2018 Camp Fire through 2022. During this fall’s high-risk wildfire season, the team were building new homes to replace those that were destroyed, using fire-resilient strategies like double-paned windows and fire-resistant siding and planting indigenous, fire-resilient trees to rehabilitate scorched land. In the final month of the program, our team was hard at work installing siding, windows, flooring, doors, trim, cabinetry, painting and completing finish work to bring comfort and security back to those who lost their homes in the 2018 Camp Fire. In partnership with Hope Crisis Response Network (HCRN) and Habitat for Humanity, we completed eight home rebuilds in Paradise and nearby Magalia by the end of December.
Our team will be returning to Paradise in March 2022 to support those affected by the devastating Wildfire, continuing work on rebuilding resilient homes. We will also return to mitigation activities like chainsaw work to create fuel breaks and remove hazard trees, as well as other environmental and home hardening modifications.
