In response to the Loma Rica area fire in Yuba County, Sutter County is supporting our neighbors any way we can. Sutter County staff (including Sutter County Fire Chief, Sutter County Emergency Management Officer, and others) are working closely with Yuba County and State officials to ensure Sutter County is providing as much assistance as possible.
The Yuba-Sutter Fairgrounds, located in Yuba City, is serving as an emergency shelter for impacted families and residents.
Sutter County will continue to share official information from CalFire, Yuba County Office of Emergency Management, and others on our Social Media feeds (Facebook and Twitter). Sutter County fire and emergency management personnel remain prepared to dispatch mutual aid to any of 29 fires currently burning in California.
Please call Yuba County’s Public Information Office at (530) 749-7700 for information about providing donations, serving as a volunteer, shelter information, etc. The Yuba-Sutter Fairgrounds and American Red Cross has specifically requested donations of toiletries (soap, shampoo, conditioner, toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc.) and new socks and undergarments (for all genders, ages, and sizes). No other donations are being sought and there is no ability to store donations which are not needed. These donations should be dropped off at Expo Hall, 442 Franklin Avenue, Yuba City.
