California Urban Search and Rescue Task Force 3, sponsored by the Menlo Park Fire Protection District, is one of eight California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (CAL-OES) and 28 National Response Teams sponsored by FEMA. Team members took the  time to respectfully take down and save an American Flag for the owner of a destroyed home they may never meet, in the Community of Magalia during the Camp Fire.
