Wildfires Update

The Alzheimer’s Association is aware of the ever changing situation with the wildfires in California. If you’re able to access the internet, our website at https://alz.org/help-support/caregiving/safety/in-a-disaster offers practical tips and resources. 

For the latest information on evacuation and fire containment, please visit the Cal Fire Website or your local county website for the latest information. We encourage you to sign up for your local community's emergency alert system and follow your local police/fire departments on social media.

How we can help:
