Cal OES Launches to Help October Wildfire Survivors

Cal OES has launched a “one-stop shop” website dedicated to helping survivors and supporters of the October 2017 wildfires, and anyone else interested in learning more. It’s an easy address to remember:

Once there, visitors will find an ever-expanding page with valuable information, links and resources. For example, at the Assistance tab you’ll find valuable information on state individual assistance, federal individual assistance, tax relief for businesses and info on time extensions for private tax payers.

There’s also assistance and resources for state employees. Also in the Resources drop-down tab there’s the latest on shelters and evacuation centers, and information on volunteering and donations.  If you’re looking for help connecting with local assistance centers or contacts in the affected areas, we have that too.

There are videos and additional information about the State Operations Center and what the Governor has to say about the Presidential Declaration. There is also detailed info and links about all of the Emergency Proclamations and Declaration.



This site is new, and is a work in progress, but we wanted to get it out there for you ASAP. We’ll update it continuously with new and helpful content.  Navigation is easy, with convenient tabs for Overview, Assistance, Resources and Contacts.  So be sure to keep checking back at for the latest. We’re with you.
