Sacramento River Overflowing at Tisdale Weir
December 21, 2010
Video of the Sacramento River overflowing at Tisdale Weir, a natural and
critical function of the Sacramento Valley Flood Control system. When the
Sacramento River rises, half its flows are diverted into the Sutter Bypass,
reducing the pressure on Sacramento River levees.
The Sutter County Tisdale Boat Deck is closed before the river overflows the weir,
and is re-opened when the water recedes and there is no forecast for additional overflows.

Sutter County, Red Cross Team Up to Produce Video on Emergency ‘Go Kit’
December 10, 2010
During an emergency, you may not have time to gather food, water and other
items you will need to keep your family safe and comfortable. When disaster
strikes, you may not have time to gather up important documents that you
will not want to leave behind.
The Sutter County Office of Emergency Management and the American Red Cross have teamed
up to produce a video describing the very simple process of preparing an emergency ‘Go Kit’.
The video is available online.

Red Cross Seeks Volunteers for Critical Emergency Positions
December 03, 2010
The American Red Cross Chapter of Northeastern California, which is headquartered in Yuba City,
is seeking volunteers to help staff the agency in large scale emergencies, as well as volunteers
to help the Red Cross provide assistance to families after fires and with tracking down members
of the military when there is a family emergency.
Charles McCaul, the local Red Cross Emergency Manager, appeared before the Sutter County Board of
Supervisors on November 20 to make an appeal to the community for volunteers.
Mr. McCaul stated that volunteers are needed for 30 different positions in a large scale disaster
impacting the entire community, and that volunteers are also needed to assist in the day to day
emergencies, such as providing housing, clothing and other resources to families after they are
burned out of their homes.
