Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC) announced it has been awarded $6 million in funds from the Sonoma County District Attorney’s settlement with PG&E related to the 2019 Kincade Fire.
SRJC said it will be investing the funds towards the school’s Fire Technologies and Wildfire Resilience programs to train a workforce dedicated to keeping Sonoma County safe from future catastrophic wildfires.
“SRJC is honored and grateful for the investment that the Sonoma County District Attorney’s Office secured for our Fire Technologies Program and our Wildfire Resilience Program,” said Dr. Frank Chong, SRJC president. “This investment will enable SRJC to grow and expand these programs that train the next generation of firefighters and wildfire resilience professionals in Sonoma County. We are ready to step up for our community.”
