Andrea Herr, Case Manager for Boles Fire Survivors
Weed Long Term Recovery Group
Marking the milestone of recovery in the community of Weed with a report on the cumulative disbursements from the Shasta Regional Community Foundation's Community Disaster Relief Fund. The remarkable recovery is made possible by YOUR donations, the volunteer Long Term Recovery Group, other partner agencies and volunteers and the resilient spirit of the people of Weed, CA.
Many policies require you to repair or replace property within a certain number of days after a loss in order to recover full replacement value (above actual cash value). 180 days (6 months- MARCH 14, 2015) is common. It is also common for insurance companies to extend these deadlines, but generally they won’t volunteer to do so, you must ask in writing and give a valid reason.
Fire survivors will need to review their policy to check for deadlines. Here is a publication on extending policy deadlines to help people know what to look for, along with two sample letters (one specific to the deadline on replacing/repairing property and one more general addressing all the deadlines )
Emily for United Policy Holders non-profit advocate organization will also post these on their Boles Fire page at www.uphelp.org/bolesfire
Organizations please use the following information form so that we can track intake of volunteers. Please return these and the volunteer sign in sheets to Tristen Holden at 260 Main Street so we can track hours for possible funding opportunities.
