Lake County Fire Protection District and Red Cross volunteers will be handing out cleaning, hygiene and comfort items in hardest-hit neighborhoods devastated by the Clayton fire when the evacuation orders are lifted. These items include water, snacks, and clean-up items such as gloves, buckets, trash bags and dust masks. Three Red Cross vehicles will be driving through the impacted neighborhoods distributing these items. Lake County Fire Protection District will also have fixed distribution points throughout the community. These will be operating Saturday, August 20 through Monday, August 22 from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
The Red Cross shelters provide immediate needs of those evacuated, including a safe place to stay, food (meals, snacks), water, showers, health services, emotional support, information, and other support resources. Impacted residents are welcome to stop by during the day for food, water, blankets, health and mental services and other support services, even if they choose to spend the night elsewhere.
