BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - California's Employment Training Panel has approved a contract with Butte Community College for nearly $600,000.

The program will train more than 600 workers on hazardous debris cleanup and emergency response following the Camp Fire. 

More than 18,000 structures burned in the fire and state officials say this training can help workers get jobs now and on future fire recovery projects.

The training will happen at Butte College's Workforce Development Center in Chico providing training and certification.
