Local Search & Rescue Teams Continue Recovery Work on Camp Fire

Posted by: thepinetree on 11/27/2018 10:33 PM
Paradise, CA....From the Tuolumne Sheriff's Dept....."Our Search and Rescue volunteers continue their work in wildfire scarred areas. On day one, volunteers went to specific addresses in Concow to verify that they had been searched. Today, we joined 8 other teams to meticulously move material within the foundations. During the mission, our team came across a scared and hungry kitty they named “Smokey.” She was so happy to see them and was quickly treated with Neosporin on her burned paws and given food and water. Smokey rode with Search and Rescue to Animal Control who then transported her to a veterinarian for care. It’s painstaking work and it will take time for this community to recover, but we are glad we can provide support and help in their time of need.
