Schiff to Reconvene Station Fire Panel
Washington, DC - Last month, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) organized a panel of Members to delve into the events of the first day of the Station Fire, which cost the lives of two brave firefighters, and threatened or destroyed the homes of a great many constituents in the 29th District and surrounding communities. Unfortunately, the Members were unexpectedly called back to Washington for a special August session and an important vote, and the panel had to be postponed.
With a strong desire to get all the facts out, and after discussion with many other Members, Rep. Schiff announced the new date and time for the panel to reconvene:
Date: Tuesday, October 12
Time: 9 a.m. – 11 a.m.
Location: Richard H. Chambers U.S. Court of Appeals Building, Courtroom Three
125 S. Grand Ave., Pasadena, CA 91105
“The goal is to hear from representatives of the Forest Service and other responding agencies, as well as outside experts and critics, to shed additional light on firefighting procedures and techniques, how they were applied during the Station Fire, and how they should be revised to improve outcomes in the future,” Rep. Schiff said.
