Resources and a Message for Fire Survivors

Dear Neighbors:

The information below and elsewhere on this site can still be useful for fire survivors.  However, I am currently not creating new content.  I created this site in 2018 to address the needs of 2017 Tubbs Fire survivors and sadly, there continue to be catastrophic wildfires, the most recent being the Glass Fire Incident (Napa/Sonoma).  But now I have shifted into working my own recovery, interrupted by what you all have experienced: further evacuations, power outages, red flag warnings, and Covid-19 pandemic protocols.

Current fire survivors, you can look at the Insureds Groups and Neighborhoods tabs to find examples of how we organized for insurance claims and rebuilding purposes.  Organizing and working together helped us push through the devastation and bolstered our resiliency. It even helped us find new “fire friends” with whom we can commiserate and not have to explain things.

Thank you to all the amazing Tubbs Fire survivors and allies I’ve had the privilege of meeting and working with.

Best wishes in solidarity.
Your Neighbor,
Vita (but I might still post…once in a while)
