What Questions Do You Have About The Camp Fire Recovery Process?

On Nov. 8, 2018, the Camp Fire devastated Paradise and surrounding Butte County communities, becoming the deadliest and most destructive fire in California history.

 

While the fire is out and evacuations have been lifted, the recovery process is just beginning. As a community we have never had to navigate a process like this, so we’re turning to you for help in learning what information you and others need to know most.

 

We want your questions about the ongoing recovery, and how the people and places affected by the fire can get assistance. How do you get funds from FEMA? How do you file a fire insurance claim? What's the best way to support people who have been displaced?

 

Ask your question in the form below. We hope by doing this we can quickly get important information to our community as we all try to heal and move forward.

Today, Colette Curtis opens our roundtable with word about the upcoming Census, which uses population figures to determine federal and state funding.

Tonight on After Paradise – it’s been 16 weeks since the Camp Fire started. In this episode we hear the latest news on PG&E, we learn that the camping ban in Paradise isn’t being enforced and we take a journey to Butte Creek Canyon – a place where land practices of the past played a role in how much of that area was destroyed by the Camp Fire.

Your questions answered: Listener Don asked for an update of the status of water conditions in Paradise, which you can find here. We also were able to find an answer for Gregory who wanted to know “When will we be able to move back to Paradise? I know it’s going to take time. Just looking for a realistic time frame.”
