SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (August 16, 2016) - In response to the Blue Cut Fire, the American Red Cross Serving San Bernardino County has opened two shelters to provide for the immediate needs of those affected by the fire.
Overnight shelters are currently open at Jessie Turner Community Center (located at 15556 Summit Avenue, Fontana, CA 92336) as well as Sultana High School (located at 17311 Sultana Street, Hesperia, CA 92345).
The Red Cross shelters will provide for the immediate needs of those affected by the fire. Services include a safe and clean place to stay, food, hydration, emotional support and health services. Both facilities will remain open for as long as there is a need.
The local American Red Cross is dedicated to assisting those affected by disasters. We are working closely with local emergency management and our partners to coordinate ongoing relief efforts. Trained Red Cross volunteers and staff are on call round-the-clock and ready to assist in various aspects including sheltering, feeding, disaster assessment, casework, and more.
Evacuees can take small animals to the Apple Valley Animal Shelter, located at 22131 Powhatan Road, Apple Valley, CA 92308. Large and small animals may also be taken to San Bernardino County Fairgrounds, located at 14800 7th Street, Victorville, CA 92395.
