SANTA ROSA, Calif. – As part of the multi-agency response to the recent fires in Northern California, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has completed asbestos removals at 93 properties in Sonoma, Napa, Lake and Mendocino counties. 

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) continues to make steady progress on the Consolidated Debris Removal Program in Northern California following the October 2017 wildfires. 

Residents recovering from the October 2017 fires in California have less than two weeks left to register with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for disaster assistance. The last day to register is Dec. 11, 2017. 

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. 

The County of Sonoma and the City of Santa Rosa in partnership with FEMA are transitioning both Local Assistance Centers (LACs) located in downtown Santa Rosa and Sonoma Valley to Disaster Recovery Centers (DRCs) on November 12, 2017. The LACs will close at 7:00pm Saturday, November 11th and re-open at 9:00am on Sunday, November 12th as DRCs.

"Band Together Bay Area" - a benefit for North Bay Fire Relief - is tonight in San Francisco at AT&T Park. 

As the rainy season approaches, multiple state, regional and local agencies are preparing for the potential impacts of the recent wildfires on urban and rural communities. There are 617 streams in the areas affected by fire in Sonoma County. Drinking water is safe and continually monitored, but because the county’s natural watersheds filter drinking water, it is critically important that ash, debris and other pollutants are prevented from entering stream systems to the maximum extent possible.

   

The County of Sonoma and the City of Santa Rosa have opened two Local Assistance Centers (LAC) in partnership with FEMA and the California Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES).

As part of an ongoing partnership in response to the recent fires, the City of Santa Rosa and County of Sonoma have established the Sonoma County Consolidated Fire Debris Removal Program (Program) to focus on removal of household hazardous waste and other fire-related debris. A Debris Removal Frequently Asked Questions and other helpful information is now available for the community about this important issue at the Sonoma County Recovers website: www.sonomacountyrecovers.org/debris-removal.
