Red Cross Closes Shelters in Frazier Park and Tehachapi, Assistance Still Available for Residents Affected by Storm
The American Red Cross of Kern County has closed the two shelters located in Frazier Park and Tehachapi.
Anyone affected by flooding or mudslides as a result of this week’s storms is encouraged to call the American Red Cross Kern Chapter at 661-324-6427, press “3” to reach Disaster Services.
“Our work here isn’t done,” said Executive Director Amy Smith, “We’ll be here for Kern County residents as long as there is a need.”
Services offered for those affected can include distribution of clean up kits and other tools, emotional health support, information on cleanup and potential health concerns, delivery of clean water, coordination of referrals and emergency housing assistance and other basic needs.
All Red Cross disaster relief services are free to those who need it. The Red Cross is able to assist affected residents of this storm and other disasters such as home fires thanks to generous donations from the community. While the Red Cross cannot accept physical donations, financial contributions can be made by visiting redcross.org/kerncounty or call 1-800-RED-CROSS to contribute to your local chapter.
