Incident: Yarnell Hill Fire Wildfire
An Individual Assistance Service Center (IASC) has been opened to help the residents of Yarnell. The focus of the IASC is to provide comprehensive assistance to the un- and underinsured who lost primary residences or personal property due to the Yarnell Hill Fire, as well as immediate needs to all residents. The center is located at the Yarnell Community Center, 22302 State Route 89.
The IASC will open at 9 a.m. on Monday, July 8. The center will serve as a centralized location for impacted residents of Yarnell to find information that will aid their personal recovery from the fire. The IASC will be open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The IASC will include representatives of Yavapai County Emergency Management, Yavapai County Development Services, the Yavapai County Health Department, the Yavapai County Sheriff, the Arizona Division of Emergency Management, the Arizona Departments of Economic Security and Insurance, Mennonite Disaster Services, Southern Baptist Disaster Relief Services, The Salvation Army, and the American Red Cross Grand Canyon Chapter to name a few.
Visitors to the IASC are asked to bring identification and to be prepared to describe their unmet need. Unmet needs are those needs not covered by your homeowner insurance policy. After any disaster, the first thing you want to do is contact your insurance company to see what is covered under your policy.
