Sonoma County Recovery
The wildfire destroyed 374 structures and burned 77,758 acres, or about 121 square miles.
Most residents, farmers and ranchers have returned to begin the hard task of taking inventory of the damage and move toward the recovery process. Sonoma County has opened a local assistance center at the Healdsburg Community Center. Residents can receive recovery help there, such as information on rebuilding and health care services, including mental health referrals.
And as we’ve mentioned the Sonoma County Farm Bureau has a Kincade Fire Donation Fund set up. People can donate by going to the Sonoma County Farm Bureau Facebook page.
Tawni Tesconi CEO of the Sonoma County Farm Bureau says the community recovered after wildfires hit two years ago and they are getting a lot of support from friends around the state and the country.
Tesconi: “ I hope this doesn’t discourage a lot of folks from coming to Sonoma County. Granted our fires are discouraging but the whole county didn’t burn down. We’re still a wonderful location for agritourism.”
On Friday, Nov. 8 , the Napa County Farm Bureau will host a charitable benefit drive to benefit Sonoma County fire victims and the Sonoma County Farm Bureau Kincade Fire Fund.
