SACRAMENTO, Calif. – All FEMA Mobile Registration Intake Centers that served wildfire survivors and helped them recover from their losses will close by Dec. 9.

The centers are temporary sites to support survivors of California’s two current federally declared disasters with disaster information. Napa County and Sonoma County MRICs are open for their final day Wednesday, Dec. 9. They are closing earlier than previously announced due to the state’s regional stay at home order related to COVID-19. The Fresno County MRIC closed Tuesday, Dec. 8.
