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. 

This weekend, the City of Santa Rosa and County of Sonoma, in coordination with state and federal partners, will hold three resource fairs focused on debris removal.

Residents whose properties were destroyed by the wildfires have the ability to access the government-operated Fire Debris Removal Program to ensure their property is left free of hazardous waste and debris; the deadline to apply for the program is November 13, 2017.

Sonoma County residents whose properties were destroyed by the wildfires have the ability to access the government operated Sonoma County Consolidated Debris Fire Removal Program to ensure that their property is left free of hazardous waste and debris.  Residential property owners must submit a Right of Entry (ROE) form by close of business on November 13, 2017, in order to participate in the Program.
