Update: California Residents eligible for Wildfire Relief Coupon
For several days, tens of thousands of Californians in southern California have been forced from their homes as fires, fueled by fierce Santa Ana winds, burn. This new wave of fires comes in the wake of major destruction from fires in northern California.
Read below how McCombs Supply is helping those impacted by the California wildfires.
Ethnicity, gender, economics - no matter.
Fires do not discriminate.
Two months ago, the most destructive fire in California history torched Santa Rosa's high-end homes, middle-class neighborhoods and a mobile home park. It left the entire spectrum of the city's population in distress as homes and businesses went up in flames.
Altogether, the fires killed 42 people and destroyed 8,400 structures, according to Cal Fire.
Here is a video of the damage from the wildfires in northern California.
Houses, rental properties and apartments that sustained damaged, but were not destroyed have appliance parts that need repaired and McCombs Supply Co. wants to help.
McCombs helped residents in Texas and Florida rebuild from hurricanes ( see related story) this fall with a discount coupon for 10 percent off their bill for purchasing appliance replacement parts.
What help is available?
Homeowner insurance policies vary, but generally fire coverage could include the cost of rebuilding, interim housing and property damages. There are limits to how much personal property is covered though, said Linda Kornfeld, vice chair at Blank Rome's insurance recovery practice, in a recent CNN story.
The key is to file claims early, she said.
EMA offers a maximum of $34,000 grant per individual to both renters and homeowners who've sustained damage during a disaster. The money can be used for temporary housing, lodging, emergency repairs, personal property loss, medical, dental and funeral expenses.
McCombs Supply is here to support our fellow American in their time of need.
