Members of Task Force 3 save American flag for owner outside destroyed Camp Fire home
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.
