Northern California Construction Training Opens Its Doors in Woodland

Northern California Construction Training Opens Its Doors in Woodland

Northern California Construction Training (NCCT) has opened its doors in Woodland, thanks to recent funding from the Yolo County Board of Supervisors.  Citing the correlation between lack of employment and a high risk for re-offense within the criminal justice population, the Board of Supervisors voted to support bringing NCCT to Woodland to enhance local efforts to break the cycle of recidivism.

Located at the Yolo County Fairgrounds, NCCT is a non-profit, community-based pre-apprenticeship program that teaches and mentors students, enabling them to successfully transition to careers in construction.  The NCCT curriculum includes classroom work and hands-on building experience, including help in obtaining a driver's license and GED if necessary.  Participants are taught by credentialed teacher-trainers who are master carpenters with years of experience.

Cal Fire warns of severe fire season

Cal Fire warns of severe fire season


AUBURN, Calif. - Cal Fire is warning of what may be a very long and very difficult fire season ahead.

"Over the next couple of months almost all of Northern California's gonna be at an above average potential for large and damaging wildfires," said Cal Fire spokesman Daniel Berlant.

The state has already seen 950 fires, triple the number in an average year. And the state is in the grip of the worst drought in recorded history.

"A lot of the green hillsides up and down the state are really just masking the dead grass that's been sitting there all winter long," Berlant points out.

At the Cal Fire station in Auburn, seasonal firefighters have been in place since the end of January, nearly three months earlier than usual.
