Local Man Part of Disaster Team That Provided Shelter to Fleeing Victims of Sonoma County Fires
“We arrived at the Sebastopol Community Center at around 3:30 a.m. and started setting up,” he said describing the relief his organization provided beginning on October 9. “We had three trailers and hundreds of cots and started unloading. People started pouring in and soon we had to open up another building to house everyone. We started taking in donations and providing the evacuees with food, water, and every comfort we could.”
Later they were relocated to Analy High School and once again helped set up a shelter. “We ran the Donations and Logistics for the shelter for the entire week with a team of thirteen working seventeen hour days,” he told us.
Later, he and two others received permission to enter the burned neighborhoods. There they took photos of the devastation.
