    Summer internships can help kick off career in federal service

    With the calendar only recently flipping to March, and the sound of rain drops dancing atop our rooftops and frosty temperatures still a part of everyday life, the prospect of sun-filled summer days can feel a ways off. Not so for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District, which has its eyes set to June and the prospect of fresh-faced interns joining the team for a few months.
  • Corps continues to tackle ‘difficult to access’ properties

    The Corps is edging closer to completing cleanup of debris on properties affected by the October 2017 wildfires that swept through Lake, Mendocino, Napa and Sonoma counties. The cleanup efforts are nearly nonstop; however, like leaving the toughest portions of a jigsaw puzzle for last, so goes the cleanup of what the Corps calls ‘difficult to access’ properties.

    Corps employees volunteer from across U.S. for NorCal wildfire mission

    USACE employees have volunteered from as far away as Pennsylvania, Tennessee, New York, Alabama and Alaska; they have volunteered in timeframes as brief as 3 days, and as long as 90 days straight. And whether their workday is spent on the phone troubleshooting issues for property owners or in the field analyzing the condition of properties, each one plays an important role in helping to return these distressed communities back to a sense of normalcy.
  • Negotiating a win-win-win

    Many of those in business negotiate deals; if each side gets what it wants, it is considered a ‘win-win’. However, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Mendocino County, the California Office of Emergency Services, and survivors from last year’s devastating wildfires can consider the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s recent action a “win-win-win.”
