What a year 2020 was. Feather River IHC’s home state saw more acres burned than ever before. We lost our station of 20 years as well as some of our homes. But the Fire Family is strong, and overall it was a successful year of fighting fire as only Hotshots can. Here’s to another successful season in 2021. Hold your loved ones close this Holiday Season. Always “Pound the Spike”.

Many thanks to Stuart Palley & NIFC for documenting our burn operation on the Penstocks as we worked to put to bed the fire that took our station and homes.
