Manufactured Homes may House Fire Victims

September 24th, 2015

Calif_fires_9_2015__kgo_tv_creditOn the heels of the wild fires that have scorched areas of northern California in recent weeks and destroyed 1,230 homes, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) took an aerial view of the Valley Fire devastation following President Barack Obama’s declaration of Lake County as a disaster zone. FEMA has asked those whose homes were destroyed to file the necessary paperwork so that the cleanup can begin, as abc7news tells MHProNews.

FEMA administrator Craig Fugate said publicly to the Valley Fire survivors, “Get in contact with us so we can plug you in and find out how to best help you.Mark Ghilarducci, director of the California Department of Emergency Services, said, “We’re looking at everything from hotels to what rental properties may be available, to opening an old resort – the Konocti Harbor Inn – to also maybe putting manufactured housing on the ground.

Noting that their assistance goes to the most needy, fire victims must register with FEMA to obtain the assistance. 100 people had registered in one day at a Red Cross Center. Fugate made it clear that for people who lost their homes but had no insurance, FEMA will not rebuild their home, although their average payment per household is $7,000. ##
