As of Monday, November 13,  FEMA has set up 11 trailers in the Sonoma Fairgrounds RV Park to help uninsured and underinsured victims of last month’s firestorms. Designed to house up to four people in about 200 square feet, each unit is connected to water, electricity and sewer lines.

Fifteen more RVs, some suitable for more than four people, are coming Tuesday, November 14. “These units are already full,” said Paul Corah, media relations specialist at FEMA. “More are on order. We’re trying to accommodate as many people as possible.”

The County of Sonoma and City of Santa Rosa are working with state and federal partners to provide safe, immediate, transitional, and long-term housing to assist residents who were displaced by the recent tragic fires and stabilize the immediate housing crisis faced by residents. It is estimated that nearly 5,000 residential units were destroyed in the fires. At their meeting today, the Board of Supervisors approved leasing 80 existing Recreational Vehicle (RV) spaces at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds to house Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Temporary Housing Units.
