Monday, May 25, 2015 — Multiple fire agencies gathered in Janesville for the annual Wildland Field Day on Saturday, May 9.

    Thirteen homes were made available and a Cal Fire proctor was stationed at each residence. When fire crews arrived, the proctor gave them a scenario and based on the information and assessment, the crew determined if the home was defendable.
