The Creek Fire Incident Management Teams continue to receive inquiries into how and what donations firefighters and community members are in need of. While the outpouring of support is truly appreciated, our Incident Command Posts and incident bases are set up to provide excellent logistical support, including food and other supplies, to first responders for the duration of the incident.
Despite best intentions, unsolicited donation items are not needed at this time and can unintentionally overwhelm relief locations, especially when donating food. Inside our incident bases, everything is carefully regulated by local health and safety ordinances, as well as strict adherence to COVID-19 regulations.
Any residents who wish to make donations are encouraged to contact your local relief organizations of choice to see if they are accepting assistance, and make the appropriate arrangements.
Residents are asked to be READY: Create and maintain defensible space and harden your home against flying embers. Get SET: Prepare your family and home ahead of time for the possibility of having to evacuate. Be ready to GO! Take the evacuation steps necessary to give your family and home the best chance of surviving a wildfire. Visit www.readyforwildfire.org for more information.
