Camp Fire Zone Project-Zone groups have been created to help aid in the rebuilding of the ridge community. Each zone (1-14, corresponding with evacuation zones listed below) has an associated Facebook Page for the sharing of common goals, ideas, and information sharing. These groups result in a unified neighborhood voice, communicating through a Zone Captain (also listed), to get answers from the public . Individuals meet/share regularly to communicate questions, concerns, and their specific needs within their smaller community. Captains then report back to community leaders and town council with input and requests. Those within a zone that know another/family within their zone, are encouraged to reach out to link all in their zone to strengthen the community voice. http://bit.ly/2LwX5iD
