Update from the Earle Baum Center on 16 October 2017
City of Santa Rosa Fire Update
EBC classes, training, and activities have resumed unless air quality or evacuation areas prevent them.
We are serving as a resource for evacuation and assistance centers when helping people with vision loss. We are also helping those with sight loss displaced by the fire replace canes, glasses, and magnifiers as well as connect to other agencies providing service they need. We thank all those who have expressed their concern for our clients, staff, and friends. Many we know have lost everything.
We encourage people to register with the Red Cross Safe and Well site:
The Santa Rosa City emergency site (https://srcity.org/610/Emergency-Information) is very useful and comprehensive, and works well with assistive technology like screen readers.
Radio station KSRO is giving current and up-to-date information, including press conferences. They are at 1350 am, 103.5 fm, and streaming at http://www.ksro.com.
Most of our staff are back on site so feel free to call if you have questions (707-523-3222) or look for updates on Facebook - just friend the "Earl Baum Center". Stay safe and help your community and family. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to those with lost homes and loved ones.
