Victims of theft
- If you have been a victim of theft from your home or vehicle, contact your local police department or sheriff’s office. Police ask that people prepare an itemized list of stolen property, including serial numbers of missing items before you call. This will help in the potential recovery of your property.
- If you are in immediate need of help, please call Red Cross at 844-236-0153 or drop-in to a local Red Cross shelter. The Red Cross will help set up a claim and direct to programs that can help in this time of need.
- A Local Assistance Center will be open to provide recovery assistance services to residents impacted by the Carr Fire: Thurs-Wed, August 2nd-8th, 9am-7pm, at Shasta High School, 2500 Eureka Way, Redding. View Press Release for details: Shasta PR – LAC 7-30-18.
