PARADISE, Calif. - On Tuesday, the Town of Paradise took a look at its progress one year after the Camp Fire in a community meeting.
"It's an ongoing loss every step of the way. You think you might've gained a little bit of ground, yet you realize you've fallen back," said Vincent Childs, a Camp Fire survivor.
Several agencies like Paradise Police, FEMA and the town gave context to the year in review in a community meeting.
Cal OES said more than 10,000 sites in the debris removal program are cleared, equaling 3.6 million tons of debris.
PID said over 50 % of standing structures show internal damage into the service line. PID said rather than testing every single line, it is going to replace them.
"I can tell you that the Paradise town staff, Police Department, Fire, we haven't stopped working since the day of the disaster, to this moment," said Lauren Gill, the Town Manager of Paradise.
"Everything takes time and everybody wants it to move a little faster, but I think things are moving forward," said Josh Jamison, a Camp Fire survivor.
