SACRAMENTO, Calif. – A FEMA Mobile Registration Intake Center opens Friday, Nov. 6, in Sonoma County to serve survivors of the LNU Complex Fire and the Glass Fire.

The intake center is part of the ongoing response and recovery mission for FEMA and the state of California to assist survivors with disaster information.

It is located at Maria Carrillo High School, 6975 Montecito Blvd., Santa Rosa, CA 95409. It will be open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday until further notice.

The LNU Lightning Complex Fire stretched across Sonoma, Napa, Solano and other counties north of the Bay Area. These counties were designated disaster areas under presidential declaration DR-4558 Aug. 22. The Glass Fire also affected Napa and Sonoma counties. These counties were designated disaster areas under DR-4569, declared Oct. 16.

Survivors can register with FEMA for federal aid in one of three ways:

  • Online at disasterassistance.gov;
  • By downloading the FEMA app to a smartphone or tablet; or
  • By calling the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362 (TTY 800-462-7585) between 7 a.m. and 10:30 p.m. PST. Those who use a relay service such as a videophone, Innocaption or CapTel, should provide FEMA with the specific number assigned to that service when they register.
  • The helpline staff can also answer questions about applications already submitted.
  • Deadline to register for assistance under DR-4558 is Nov. 23.
  • Deadline to register for assistance under DR-4569 is Dec. 16.

Registration enables FEMA to determine residents’ eligibility for financial assistance that may include rent, home repair, home replacement and other serious disaster-related needs such as childcare, transportation and medical, funeral or dental expenses.
