Adventist Health

Staying healthy is a major challenge for people living without proper shelter, most of whom are indigent, have no health insurance and cannot qualify for Medi-Cal for lack of a fixed address. Research shows that getting indigent people into primary care can significantly improve their state of health, improve their chances of overcoming homelessness, and reduce the rate at which they present at hospital emergency rooms with acute illnesses.

The River Fire had limited movement overnight, a burnout operation conducted on the Northern portion of the fire in the late afternoon improved containment. Today we will look at burning out and tying in containment lines. The Ranch Fire continues to grow in the north and south eastern directions, threatening communities in the fires path. The terrain on the Northern quarter of the Ranch Fire make it challenging to access the fire front directly. Many crews will be on the ground in the communities threatened by the fire, providing structure protection.
