Resources to Support Wildfires Response and Recovery in Northern California

Posted by on August 25th, 2020 Posted in: Announcements, Consumer Health, Emergency Preparedness and Response, NLM Products, Public Health


On August 22, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced the White House approved California’s request for a Presidential Major Disaster Declaration to bolster the state’s emergency response to wildfires burning in Northern California and support impacted residents in Lake, Napa, San Mateo, Santa Cruz, Solano, Sonoma and Yolo counties. With assistance from NLM’s Disaster Information Management Research Center (DIMRC), we compiled many resources to assist with response and recovery from the affected areas, including information guides with curated, reliable information from vetted federal, state, and local governments and organizations.
