> September 2020 California Wildfires Helping Handbook
“This handbook provides an overview of some issues that individuals, families, and small businesses may face as a result of the fires that broke out in California starting on September 4, 2020. While fires have occurred throughout the state in 2020, this handbook focuses particularly on Fresno, Los Angeles, Madera, Mendocino, Napa, San Bernardino, San Diego, Shasta, Siskiyou, and Sonoma counties because, as of the time of this publication, these were the counties covered by the federal government’s Major Disaster Declaration, DR-4569 (declared on October 16, 2020 and later amended), which triggered certain assistance to individuals.” September 2020 California Wildfires Helping Handbook is current through October 19, 2020 and was developed by Morrison & Foerster LLP.
