California Penal Code Section 396 generally prohibits charging a price that exceeds, by more than 10 percent, the price of an item before a state or local declaration of emergency. This law applies to those who sell food, emergency supplies, medical supplies, building materials and gasoline. The law also applies to repair or reconstruction services, emergency cleanup services, transportation, freight and storage services, hotel accommodations and rental housing.

A Disaster Recovery Center (DRC), jointly operated by the State of California’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), has opened in Santa Rosa to offer residents affected by the devastating October 2017 wildfires a one-stop-shop for disaster assistance. The DRC is a continuation of the locally led assistance center that opened in the early days of the fire response. 

The center is in the Press Democrat Building at 427 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa, CA 95410, and will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week.
