OAKHURST – Sheriff John Anderson, Director of the Madera County Office of Emergency Services (OES), continues to reach out to those impacted by the Courtney Fire disaster.
The Sheriff’s Office will have a booth set up outside Raley’s, at 40041 Highway 49 in Oakhurst on Saturday, Sept. 20, from 9 to 11 a.m.
Regardless of the level of damage you may have suffered during this disaster, you are urged to fill out a damage survey, so that the OES can better assist you during recovery.
The Courtney Disaster Survey is not an application for assistance. The purpose of the document is to gather information to assess the level of assistance needed, and to determine the extent of the disaster.
Sheriff’s Office staff will also be available to register citizens who still have not signed up for MCAlerts. The Sheriff’s Office is happy to announce that they registered close to 500 people just this week, to receive emergency alert notifications. If you haven’t signed up, you are urged to either call the Sheriff’s Office at 559-675-7770 or log onto www.mcalert.org
If you cannot make it to Raley’s today, the Sheriff’s Office urges those who suffered damage and/or loss to call them at 559-675-7770 and ask for Public Information Officer Erica Stuart.
Again, the purpose of this survey is to help the OES find assistance programs, including grant dollars that they can bring into the community, as well as using this survey to help in assessing the impact of the Courtney Fire disaster.
