Wildfire Relief

Recovering from a wildfire takes time and a diverse network of organizations and services to make sure people have the help they need.

Since the Erskine fire started, together we have:
  • Opened 3 shelters, which have seen more than 560 overnight stays
  • Served more than 1,600 meals and snacks
  • Distributed nearly 500 relief items to impacted residents
  • Throughout wildfire season, the Red Cross will continue to monitor fire trajectories and share safety information, set up evacuation centers and provide needed resources to help people respond when additional fires threaten.

    Need help now? Contact your local Red Cross or find an open shelter near you
