North Bay & Coast Wildfires Response Information


Thousands of residents in Sonoma, Napa, Lake and Mendocino counties were forced to evacuate their homes in the middle of the night as an estimated 10 fires burned uncontrolled across the North Coast, driven by strong winds that for hours fueled the fires and forced entire communities to flee.

DCARA is assisting all Deaf and hard of hearing people, who were affected by wildfires on navigating the Red Cross and insurance systems, and more during this emergency crisis.

If you are one of those affected and need assistance, please call us at 510-343-6670 or email us at
