HELPING OUR COMMUNITY
Disaster Resiliency and Recovery
Learning from the Caldor Fire, we have taken the experience and have created disaster preparedness and recovery educational information, trainings and hands on workshops that will prepare the most vulnerable communities within the western slope of El Dorado County.
Community Tool Shed
The Community Toolshed provides Caldor Fire survivors with access to tools and equipment that they may have lost in the fire. It is a lending resource available at no cost to the families rebuilding their homes and their lives.
Working directly with the Caldor Fire Survivors to obtain resources, services and assistance to help aid their daily lives, while they rebuild to their new normal.
Survivors living in trailers, especially in Grizzly Flats during the hot treeless summers and snowy winters, are in desperate need of specific items to help them survive the seasonal weather elements. Questionnaires are created and sent to the survivors several months before the change in season to obtain information on what is needed the most. Mini Seasonal Distribution Days are set up at the start of the season to pass out those items that have been requested by the survivors.
To show our support for those that served our country, WSF created a program that supplies financial aid for the Caldor Fire surviving veterans. This program is still evolving as well to include more interaction with the VET Center to supply even more resources to our veterans.
