Re-entry and Recovery Resources

The County of Sonoma is here to support our community as we recover from the 2020 Walbridge/Meyers Fires.

Here you’ll find information on returning home or your steps to recovery from the Walbridge and Meyers fires. Use the buttons below to find the information you need, and consult this list to start your path to recovery:

  1. Please return home safely.
  2. Consult the resources list for government and non-profit resources including financial, insurance and document replacement assistance.
  3. Look for markers on your property that indicate if it is safe to enter, and that the County has removed particularly hazardous material from your property (like asbestos siding and batteries).
  4. Once your property is safe to enter and any hazardous materials have been removed, begin debris removal and watershed protection (more information to come).
  5. Start your rebuild (more information to come).

We recognize that if your property was damaged there are many steps ahead of you, and that the list above is a simplified starting place. We will continue to share information and resources here to support you on your path to recovery.
