December 05, 2017 21:05The state of California has once again issued a request for firefighting resources to assist with firefighting efforts in California. Oregon will be answering their request by sending resources from throughout the state. Multnomah County is sending a strike team of type-one engines to assist. The five engines for the strike team will consist of two Gresham Fire engines and three Portland Fire engines, and a Chief Officer. The team has assembled, collected the wildfire deployment equipment that had been stowed after their return from the North Bay fire barely six weeks ago, and are headed south to meet up with other resources from our state.
