Important Information About Fire Recovery Resources
The Hill and Woolsey Fires damaged or destroyed nearly 100 homes in the Thousand Oaks and Oak Park areas. With burned hillsides, some residents also need to be prepared to protect their homes form pending rains and potential debris flow.
Last month the City and County hosted a Fire Recovery Town Hall and the launch of our joint information website: VenturaCountyRecovers.org. We understand that recovery is a lengthy and sometimes complex process, and we are here to work with you for the long haul.
