Grass Valley Wildfire Site: Visit scheduled for Tuesday and where to send donations…

I forgot to give you the am update: Slide Fire is at 92% containment and the Grass Valley at 100% containment. If you want to get help to fire survivors who have lost their homes the email I was given is [email protected].org

Below is the press release from yesterday:

Residents and property owners of Grass Valley (sic–I think they mean incident area) will be given an opportunity to view their homes and properties and salvage belongings during an organized site visit on Tuesday, October 30, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The mandatory evacuation order for this area will remain in effect during the visit. Those attending the site visit will have to leave the area following the visit.

Those interested in viewing their lots must check in at Mary Putnam Henck Intermediate School at 730 Rhine Road, Lake Arrowhead, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. and attend a short briefing, where they will be given a pass necessary for participation in the visit. Firefighters and law enforcement will be present, as well as counselors from the county Department of Behavioral Health, county Department of Public Health professionals, health care personnel, and representatives from the American Red Cross and the FEMA Community Services Division.

People attending the site visit are advised to bring canvas gloves, sturdy footwear, eye protection, and to wear long pants and long-sleeved shirts. The county Department of Public Health will provide plastic bags for salvaged belongings, rubber gloves, and facemasks.

Information on the ongoing fire emergency, including the status of the fires, assistance resources, damaged and destroyed homes, is available via a disaster link on the county website,

Information on assistance is also available by calling 211 within the county and 1 (888) 435-7565 from outside the county, and by visiting the Fire Emergency Local Assistance Center (FELAC) at the Dome building at the National Orange Show Events Center in San Bernardino.
