Disaster Recovery

Trinity County continues to conduct assessments of communities impacted by the August Complex and is urging the public, that as evacuation orders lift, to use extreme caution. Any handling of fire debris is highly discouraged, as handling/sifting of fire debris and ash, can be extremely hazardous to human health and the environment (see this link from California Environmental Protection Agency for more information: https://oehha.ca.gov/media/downloads/public-information/report/fireash.pdf). Please note that this debris cannot be taken to local solid waste facilities, and has to be removed properly with demolition permits and hazardous waste evaluations. Trinity County has requested assistance from the state’s fire debris removal process and will keep the public updated with this effort. 


American Red Cross is currently sheltering Trinity County residents in hotels. Families searching for loved ones who have evacuated due to fires can contact the American Red Cross at 1-800-Red-Cross (1-800-733-2767) or go to safeandwell.org. Evacuees can go to safeandwell.org to register and post a brief message for family members who are searching for them.ccc
