Humboldt County Assessing Needs to Help Respond to Fires

County of Humboldt - The Home of the Redwoods Seal

As multiple wildfires continue to threaten our neighboring counties, the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services has created an information line dedicated to assessing the needs of evacuees entering our community.
Evacuees entering Humboldt County are encouraged to call 707-441-5000 for information about services available to them while waiting to return to their homes. This line will be staffed from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays. Resource information can also be found online on the county's incident web page.
The Eureka Community Health and Wellness Center, located at 2200 Tydd Street in Eureka, is currently accepting patients who have been displaced due to wildfire. Evacuees are encouraged to visit this clinic for all non-emergency medical needs (including medication refills, breathing treatments and outpatient care). Evacuees who are experiencing a medical emergency should not visit this location, and should call 9-1-1 instead.
As with any disaster, community members wanting to provide aid to wildfire victims should only donate to a legitimate and reputable agency. Locally, Pay it Forward Humboldt, Redwood Capital Bank and United Way of Northern California are accepting financial contributions to aid wildfire victims. For more information on how to donate, visit the county's incident web page.
The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services will be issuing information updates as needed via county news alerts and social media. To sign up for county news alerts, go to the county’s website.
