California Wildfires

California Wildfires

On November 8, 2018 several wildfires sparked across Northern and Southern California. While they continue to burn out of control it is suspected that hundreds, if not thousands, of homes have burned.

Recent reports suggest there are hundreds of people still missing and unaccounted for. Twitter is active with people looking for missing loved ones. Facebook has pages and groups dedicated to reuniting families and their pets. 

The destruction is hard to comprehend, it is so widespread and so devastating.

Check back often for updates, to donate, to request donations, and to join our Adopt a Family program.

Resources for Survivors of the California Wildfires

Join our Bear Hugger Adopt a Family Program™ 

One of the most powerful things we can do for people in the aftermath of disaster is let them know we care and they are not alone. That’s what this program is designed to do.

Our Bear Hugger Adopt a Family Program allows families to adopt other families in need after a disaster. Many times people want to donate to someone specific, someone they feel like they know, someone they can get specific items for.

Below you can register as a family in need or a family who can help. Please register below to be paired with your Bear Hugger family today. 

What to do After a Disaster 

Emergency Food and Water After a Disaster

If you need emergency food and water after a disaster, find an open emergency shelter or listen to local radio or TV for other disaster feeding sites. You can also check with local agencies for food assistance.

If you’re in your home, follow guidelines for food safety after a power outage or flood.

For specific food safety guidelines after a flood visit the USA.gov website and get specific action steps to keep you and your family safe.

Returning Home After a Disaster 

We know you may be tempted, but whatever you do, do NOT attempt to return to your property until your local officials have given the all clear. Though it may feel like it takes forever to get permission to go back, know that local officials want to get you in there just as soon as they are sure that it is safe.

After disasters there are often downed power lines that are hidden under debris, unstable buildings that can fall at any moment, or other hazards you may not be aware of.

Once home, remember disposal is going to be a huge consideration. Keep an eye out for items that will need special forms of disposal. Follow your area’s guidelines for disposing of damaged property.

If your family heirlooms or treasures have been damaged, there are a number of resources for saving them online.

Disaster Relief Assistance

There are several places to look for disaster relief assistance. In addition to your local government you can check the following links:


Tax Relief After a Disaster

Find out if you qualify for disaster relief on your federal taxes.

​

Complaints

If you have a complaint about disaster relief assistance, contact the Department of Homeland Security's Inspector General’s Office at 1-800-323-8603.
