Valley Fire Long-Term Recovery Coordinator Carol Huchingson is excited to be part of the rebuilding efforts. “Now that the debris cleanup is almost completed, Valley Fire survivors can concentrate their efforts on rebuilding. The Task Force and the County are working hard to do all we can to help make the process as smooth as possible and get people thinking about a positive future here in Lake County.”
Residents of nearby communities not damaged by the Valley Fire, but vulnerable to wildfires and flooding, also are encouraged to attend.
A team of experts in fire- and flood-resistant techniques will be available for one-on-one question-and-answer sessions. Topics include:
Participants include CAL FIRE, California Fire Safety Council, California Contractors Licensing Board, California Insurance Commission, Lake County Historical Society, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, FEMA, Cal OES, National Flood Insurance Program and the Lake County Chamber of Commerce.
The Valley Fire Long-Term Recovery Task Force meeting will immediately follow the event, beginning at 7 PM in the Event Center, at the Twin Pine Casino. This meeting is open to the public.
