Reach out to your insurance company as quickly as possible. It would be beneficial to designate one person to address immediate issues related to accessing key resources available from your district insurance company.

Tips:

  • Check for state and federal grant relief sources, including those listed below.

Resources:

  • Butte County Crisis Response Kit - This padlet contains resources compiled by the Butte County Office of Education in response to fires in their area. However, the trauma response resources here can be used for any type of crises that exceed a school/district's capacity to respond, from man made to natural disasters.  

  • California Victim Compensation Board - The board has resources that can help pay bills and expenses that result from violent crime. Victims of crime who have been injured or have been threatened with injury may be eligible for help.
