Debris Removal - Delta Fire

Logan Baldini outside Redding City Limits
October 7, 2018, 5:06 PM

Hello,

My stepfather property was burned down in the Delta Fire. Items that were burned were cars , 5th wheel travel Trailer, small outhouse and small storage cabin. Can you help with debris removal even if there is no insurance on the property? He is on a very small limited income so paying someone to clean it up is near impossible, as he has to replace his whole livelihood first.

Unfortunately, the Delta fire losses are not covered by the Cal OES debris removal program. He can apply for FEMA assistance, but the deadline was October 3. He may still be able to apply under an exception, but he'll need to speak directly with a FEMA rep to determine his eligibility. FEMA representatives will be at the DLOC (Disaster Loan Outreach Center), which opens up tomorrow (October 9) at the First Christian Church of Redding on 3590 Placer Street. The DLOC will be open 8am-5pm Monday-Friday.

Your comment implies that Shasta County is performing debris removal and that is not the case. The State of California is performing debris removal in the county as a result of an emergency declaration due to one specific event: the Carr Fire. While there are other events that occurred in the County, the removal of debris by CalRecycle is tied to the Carr Fire event. That said, FEMA was accepting applications for folks affected by the Delta Fire, but those applications were not guaranteed to be accepted, either. Those decisions happen further up the chain than our City/County. County staff is working with and for County residents who were affected by ALL wildfires this summer, but that assistance does not automatically translate to the State debris removal program. I hope that helps clear that up. In the meantime, there are several local companies that advertise debris removal, you'll need to research cost, timeline, and scope of services to determine which one best suits your needs.
