Fire Recovery, Learning A Trade, Old Kai Update

20 hours ago

January 19, 2018 -- Today's newscast is heavy on building. We'll hear about a new program for high school seniors to learn a trade, and check in on what fire survivors need to do in order to start rebuilding their homes. We'll also hear a quick update on the Old Kai cannabis seizure story. We spotted the confiscated truck at the county impound lot, but no law enforcement agency has confirmed yet who took the weed, and whether it's been destroyed or not. If so, an affidavit should show up at the courthouse sometime next week. We'll keep you posted.

New Consultant Speaks About Homelessness

Jan 19, 2018

January 19, 2018 -- Mendocino Cunty has hired a new consultant, Dr. Robert Marbut, to research homelessness and make recommendations about how to address the situation. Earlier this month, Marbut gave a presentation about his initial findings about the numbers of homeless people in Ukiah and Fort Bragg. He is still counting in Willits and the unincorporated areas, and expects to have recommendations in March. We're sharing the broadcast version of the interview, as well as a longer version.

This is an interview with Theresa Gowan, Medstar Ambulance Operations Manager and EMT-Paramedic, from January 2nd, 2018.  One of many unsung heroes in Mendocino County, she tells us the story of Medstar Ambulance, previously known as Ukiah Ambulance, and provides a clear insight into what happens when we dial 911.

This is an interview with Anderson Valley Fire Chief Andres Avila and Medstar Ambulance Operations Manager Theresa Gowan concerning the development of an 'Exclusive Operating Area' (EOA) for emergency medical services (EMS) for inland Mendocino County.
