    The California Department of Toxic Substance Control has initiated the Phase 1 Household Hazardous Waste Sweeps of properties with damaged or destroyed structures from the Meyers and Walbridge fires in Sonoma County.

  • Published on August 28, 2020

    Residents affected by the Walbridge and Meyers fires can access recovery services and resources at two Local Assistance Centers (LACs) beginning Saturday, Aug. 29.  Both LACs will provide the same resources to residents, including assistance with replacing documents (such as drivers licenses, identification cards and vital records), accessing financial resources, rebuilding information and the insurance claims process. Non-profits will be on-hand to assist with resource coordination but will not be issuing gift cards.
