A Big Thank You

& More Ways to Help

When disasters like devastating wildfires strike in our community, an outpouring of support, relief and rescue efforts follows close behind. Such was the case during the recent wildfires that ravaged the local area last November. First responders from in and out of state, including sheriff’s offices, fire departments, police departments and paramedics, flooded in to ensure the safety and well-being of the communities affected by the Hill and Woolsey Fires.

In addition to the first responders’ efforts, chamber of commerce’s, cities, community businesses, nonprofits and thousands of individuals throughout Los Angeles and Ventura Counties stepped in to assist with relief and provide support to residents who were displaced from the wildfires.
