Emergency operations center extends Molalla stay
The Clackamas County Emergency Operations Center has extended the operations of the Fire Resource Center in Molalla through Thursday, Oct. 22, to coincide with the current schedule of FEMA registration staff and the Oregon Debris Management Taskforce's extended deadline for submission of its right-of-entry permission form.
The Fire Resource Center was designed to be a "one-stop shopping" assistance center to help individuals and families recover following the wildfires. At least 185 Clackamas County residents have visited the Fire Resource Center for help since it opened Tuesday, Sept. 22.
Clackamas County wildfire victims are urged to submit right-of-entry forms as soon as possible. The form allows government contractors to remove household hazardous waste at no cost. This saves property owners money that may be needed to rebuild.
Clackamas County has posted useful information online to help residents recover and rebuild, including the right-of-entry form. Visit clackamas.us/wildfires.
The Fire Resource Center will continue to facilitate FEMA registrations for federal aid and the submission of right-of-entry forms. Salvation Army food boxes and American Red Cross cleanup kits are still available as well.
The Fire Resource Center is located in the Molalla River School District Community Gymnasium at 412 S. Sweigle Ave. It is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, through Thursday, Oct. 22.
