E-newsletter: Spokane Wildfire Resources

Dear Friends,

Like many of our neighbors in the Medical Lake/Four Lakes area, my family was notified to evacuate our home Friday afternoon because of the Spokane Gray Wildfire.

This situation is grave for those who have lost everything; and it is extremely difficult for those who have had to relocate and cannot get home.

I have been in many meetings over the weekend with the Mayor of Medical Lake Terri Cooper and state/local officials. I prioritized spending time at the Red Cross station at Spokane Falls Community College to meet with displaced families.

On Sunday, we were able to see first-hand the devastation at the Spokane Gray Wildfire site. The extent of the damage cannot be overstated. I am proud and thankful that our community has stepped up with volunteers and donations to give whatever they have, to those who have lost so much.

I am including state and local resource information below for you to use and to share with anyone who may need them as we navigate this disaster. Since the Spokane County Commissioners and the Governor have declared both a County-wide and State Emergency – I will be sharing more information on available government assistance and resources as they become available.

As always, if you are having difficulty contacting a state agency for assistance, please do not hesitate to contact my office: 509-456-2747.
