Shasta Environmental Alliance Meeting Featuring Redding Fire Fighter Jamie Harvey.

Monday, January 14, 6pm

Redding Library

 Redding Firefighter Jamie Harvey will talk about the Carr Fire with photos and video clips he took while fighting the fire from Whiskeytown to Redding. One of these videos he shot is a very tense chair gripping drive he had to take through Swasey Drive with the fire on both sides of the road. He has many photos and video clips to show and will explain the progress of the fire from Whiskeytown to Redding.

Mike Jones from Streams and Greenways Alliance (SAGA) will present a summary of the issues of concern about the Dignity Health Complex near Henderson Open Space. North State Climate Action is a new SEA supporting organization and will be introduced. The public is welcome to attend this free and interesting program which will end at 7:30 pm. This meeting will be at the Redding Library Community room starting at 6 pm, Monday January 14.

    Will they have a side room where the “family” of the burned homes can grieve in private?

  2. David Ledger says:

    This program is to show how Redding firefighters and other firefighters risked their lives to save local residents homes and lives. It is educational in showing the progress and ferocity of the fire and how almost overwhelmed firefighters worked to fight it sometimes working 48 hour plus straight shifts, several losing their lives and some losing their own homes while protecting our homes . It is a recognition of the work of our firefighting professionals. Those finding this upsetting may not want to attend.

    I’ve been wondering what is going on with the Dignity Health Project near the river, this should keep us up to dote.
