CVFPB Presents Resolution of Appreciation to Emergency Responders

February 2017 brought an unusually high number of atmospheric rivers with high levels of precipitation, high snow levels, flooding and high water levels to much of the state, causing State-Federal Flood Operations to activate an emergency response that lasted for over 4 months. Responders were activated from the Department of Water Resources, Central Valley Flood Protection Board, National Weather Service, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, State-Federal Flood Operations Center, Flood Fight Specialists and Inspectors out in the field, the five 20-member Incident Command Teams assigned to specific regions of California, and other agencies. CVFPB wished to acknowledge those emergency responders and their efforts on behalf of public safety. A resolution of gratitude and appreciation was presented at CVFPB’s July 28th board meeting.
