The California Conservation Corps operates 17 wildland firefighting hand crews at nine centers. The CCC partners with CAL FIRE, U.S. Forest Service, and Bureau of Land Management to provide hand crews to fight wildland fires throughout the state.
Wildland firefighter hand crews fall into two categories, Type I and Type II.
The CCC partners with CAL FIRE to operate 12 Type I crews. Type I crews focus on constructing fire lines by hand in areas too rugged or where environmental sensitivities prevent heavy machinery.

They generally respond during the initial few hours of a fire and can remain for longer term commitments on major fires.
The CCC operates an independent Type II hand crew at the Shasta Cascade Center in Redding. Shasta 21 responds to fires upon request by various agencies.

A CCC partnership with the U.S. Forest Service operates three Type II hand crews along with a third partnership with BLM operating one crew. Type II crews mostly construct fire line to help contain and control wildland fires and can perform initial attacks on fires.
