Zone Captains Assisting Displaced Fire Victims
Local Innovation Works is an organization initially developed during the pandemic to educate future leaders.
But when the Almeda Fire happened, things quickly changed.
Through the Local Innovation Works, a new initiative was developed called Zone Captains. Helping victims displaced from the Almeda Fire reconnect and rebuild. Remake Talent pioneered and continues to fund the rollout of the program.
It is managed by both Remake Talent and Local Innovation Works.
Rogue Workforce Partnership funding makes these positions possible.
And if helping those who lost everything in the fire wasn’t enough, the community felt a better alert system needed to be developed.
