Cal Fire has announced that the El Camino Fire Station 9 has been awarded a $1.1 million grant. This grant means for the next two years, station 9 will be fully staffed leading to quicker response times for Proberta, Rancho Tehema and Gerber.

This is the first time since 2004 that the station will have an around the clock staff. The staff will provide an extra line of support for the already existing volunteers.

A meeting is planned for the end of month for anyone who wants to meet the new staff or learn more about how the grant will be used. The date and time will be listed on the Tehama County Fire Dept. website soon.
