Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation receives fire department accreditation
The Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation of California has received a national accreditation for its fire department.

The tribe is the first in Indian Country to be recognized by the Commission on Fire Accreditation International. Only seven other departments in the state have the accreditation.

“We are very proud of the Yocha Dehe Fire Department and honored to be the first Native American government to accomplish this goal,” Chairman Marshall McKay said in a press release.

The tribe's department serves communities on and off the reservation.
