Gov. Gavin Newsom on Monday announced the launch of a new website at response.ca.gov that gathers information on a variety of services and resources that can be used by people affected by wildfires and power shutoffs around the state.
The website has information on current wildfires, transportation impacts, shelter and housing options, health and government services, preparedness tips and other resources.
Newsom said in a news release:
“California continues to rise to the challenge of power shutoffs and natural disasters.”
“This site will continuously be updated as needed to provide Californians with the resources they need.”
Newsom declared a statewide emergency Sunday in response to dangerous weather conditions that fanned the flames of the Kincade Fire in Sonoma County as well as several other wildfires throughout California.
He is visiting a Cal Fire base camp in Santa Rosa on Monday evening and previously met with emergency responders, local leaders and residents in Geyserville, Napa, Petaluma and Los Angeles in the past week, according to the governor’s office.
