Cots in a shelter with belongings from evacuees

Shelter resources available in response to Kincade Fire

UPDATED: 11/1/2019

Evacuation shelters throughout Sonoma County and surrounding areas are open in response to the Kincade Fire. Per Sonoma County, all evacuation shelters are small animal friendly and no identification is needed to stay at an evacuation shelter.

Also, Government Agencies, such as ICE, do not have access to the shelters. English and Spanish-speaking staff will be there to make these safe, supportive places for all.

Be sure to go to SoCoEmergency.org for the very latest information on Shelters and Warming Centers.

    What’s your backup plan? Shelters are full. Wake up this is not a plan

      Totally agree! There are no resources available in Sonoma County!! People have been left in the dark for weeks! (We last had power 8 days ago, and this is a senior community! ) There are no city, county, or public offices open or places for people to go. This is reprehensible! We refuse to call 9-1-1, but we have been abandoned in Santa Rosa without information or any reasonable alternatives since gas stations are closed, stores are closed, we have no food, lights, heat, internet, phone numbers that are answered or any help other than “emergencies”. There are no hotel rooms in any local communities. We are at our wits end. We are contemplating going to an airport to get flights just to get away from this place. Many of us will leave permanently if we can manage it.

    Need to specify on your listings which shelters can take ANIMALS! This happens every time, and people are turned down with animals, or they have to stay in their cars…
    The same comment applies to the CAL FIRE report details on evacuation centers.
    Thank you so much.
