    The all-hands-on-deck meetings took place at both debris removal contractor base camps at 6:30 a.m. ahead of debris removal operations and included representatives from CalRecycle, the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services, the California Highway Patrol and the California Department of Transportation. The latest safety briefing was held in addition to regular safety-focused meetings to help reinforce safety protocols as the project progresses. Read more about the safety briefing on this Cal OES Newsroom post.
