MoFo Releases an Updated Version of its Helping Handbook for Those Affected by the Ongoing California Wildfires
The recent wildfires have caused thousands of Californians to experience unimaginable losses. In Northern California, the Camp Fire in Butte County is the most destructive wildfire in California history, resulting in the deaths of an untold number of individuals, leveling the town of Paradise and surrounding areas, and displacing thousands of families from their homes.
In Southern California, the Woolsey Fire in Ventura and Los Angeles counties and the Hill Fire in Ventura County have burned over 100,000 acres combined, resulting in at least three deaths, forcing tens of thousands of people to evacuate, and destroying over fifteen hundred homes and buildings.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recently announced that residents in Butte, Ventura, and Los Angeles counties are eligible to register for disaster relief assistance. To help residents in the affected areas navigate through the options for aid and the various agencies providing it, Morrison & Foerster released an updated version of our Helping Handbook.
The Fall 2018 California Wildfires Helping Handbook provides up-to-date, practical information for individuals, families, and small businesses on subjects including housing, government benefits, insurance, FEMA assistance, replacement of lost documents, and fraud prevention.
We encourage the widest possible distribution of this resource. Organizations may request free print copies in bulk by sending a request to Firehandbook@mofo.com.
