Governor Brown Declares State of Emergency in Madera, Mariposa and Tulare Counties due to Wildfires

Sacramento, CA...Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today issued an emergency proclamation for Madera, Mariposa and Tulare counties due to the effects of the Railroad, Pier, Mission and Peak fires, which have burned thousands of acres, threatened homes and critical infrastructure and caused the evacuation of residents.




The full text of the proclamation is below:



PROCLAMATION OF A STATE OF EMERGENCY


WHEREAS on August 29, 2017, the Railroad Fire started in Madera County and rapidly spread into Mariposa County, and the Pier Fire started in Tulare County; and
WHEREAS on September 3, 2017, the Mission Fire began burning in Madera County, and the Peak Fire started in Mariposa County; and
WHEREAS these fires have burned thousands of acres, destroyed structures and continue to threaten homes, necessitating the evacuation of residents; and
WHEREAS these fires are threatening critical infrastructure and have forced the closure of roadways; and
WHEREAS extreme weather conditions and high temperatures have further increased the risk of fires; and
WHEREAS the Federal Emergency Management Agency has approved Federal Fire Management Assistance Grants for the Railroad, Pier, and Mission Fires to assist with the costs associated with fighting these fires; and
WHEREAS the circumstances of these fires by reason of their magnitude, are or are likely to be beyond the control of the services, personnel, equipment, and facilities of any single local government and require the combined forces of a mutual aid region or regions to combat; and
WHEREAS under the provisions of section 8558(b) of the Government Code, I find that conditions of extreme peril to the safety of persons and property exists in Madera, Mariposa, and Tulare Counties due to these fires.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, EDMUND G. BROWN JR., Governor of the State of California, in accordance with the authority vested in me by the State Constitution and statutes, including the California Emergency Services Act, and in particular, section 8625 of the Government Code, HEREBY PROCLAIM A STATE OF EMERGENCY to exist in Madera, Mariposa, and Tulare Counties.
I HEREBY ORDER that all agencies of the state government utilize and employ state personnel, equipment, and facilities for the performance of any and all activities consistent with the direction of the Office of Emergency Services and the State Emergency Plan. Also, all residents are to heed the advice of emergency officials with regard to this emergency in order to protect their safety.

I FURTHER DIRECT that as soon as hereafter possible, this Proclamation be filed in the Office of the Secretary of State and that widespread publicity and notice be given of this Proclamation.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the State of California to be affixed this 7th day of September 2017.

The only thing Jerry needs to be concerned about is the death of the Sherrif Deputy in Sacramento last week, one of his non violent AB109 crowd! That Deputies blood is directly on Jerry's hands not to mention 1,000's of other AB109 er's that have committed violent crime's since their release! Jerry, not only are you a Snowflake, but a dumbass as well!

The freaking idiots sniveling about this news article and the Governor have either never known or forgot or don't care that the Governor did the same for Calaveras declaring an emergency disaster for the Butte fire.

    Any governor would have done the same. It's a simple proclamation. Jerry Brown is still just plain and simple a POS. Get these moron Democrats out of our state........unless you love control, and increased taxes, with no representation. Snowflake

      BS. This is a progressive state. Has both reasonable conservatives and liberals. Generally, it has good balance. Where CA goes, so does the nation. You might like somewhere else better- maybe you should move if you don't like that, very little taxes in Nevada.

        Brown is a fantastic governor. The best in the United States. Trump is the worst president that has ever lived.

      Huh? What are talking about? "Taxation without representation"? How do you figure that? You pay taxes but don't get everything your way? It doesn't work like that , not for anybody or everybody.

      Good ole moonbeam. The bankruptornator of the peoples republic of Khalifornistan.

      May God help those who think this man is doing a great job, they are a certain type of stupid.
      Counting down the days until I leave this state.

      Eventually the guys who pull the cart will be all gone, so its going to be the free loaders and snowflakes.
      Now lets guess how many dead snowflakes its going to take before moonbeam and his ilk figure out they screwed up?
