The CDCR is responsible for the selection, supervision, care and discipline of the inmates. CALFIRE maintains the camp, supervises the work of the inmate fire crews, and is responsible for inmate custody while on daily grade projects. CDCR staff often accompany inmate fire crews on out-of-county assignments, or on local assignments located near residential areas. Inmates are directly supervised 24hours per day while on work projects and while assigned to emergencies. In addition to fires, Ben Lomond crews have been assigned to rescue efforts in local parks, and are also eligible to respond for flood suppression.
