Santa Fe, NM - The Hermit’s Peak/Calf Canyon Claims Office has paid $101.11 million for claimant losses as of Thursday, October 19, 2023. Some of the most frequently requested losses that have been processed by the Claims Office include losses related to damaged homes and related infrastructure. These losses involve rebuilding access roads to homes, critical infrastructure like wells and septic systems, and funds to compensate for losses to outbuildings. The Claims Office has also distributed significant compensation for protective measures and future regrowth losses. Compensation for these losses includes purchasing flood insurance policies, removing debris/ obstructions and funds for reseeding.
The third most frequently compensated group of losses are losses experienced during the evacuation period. This category includes compensation for mileage to evacuate, food expenses, hotel stays, and food losses experienced due to evacuation and/or power outages.
Working with our federal, tribal, state and local government partners we are also addressing more complex losses related to acequias, debris removal, reforestation and rebuilding community infrastructure. Regardless of the type of loss being addressed, the Claims Office is focused on providing maximum compensation within the legal bounds of the Final Regulations. The Claims Office encourages all those who were impacted by the Hermit’s Peak/Calf Canyon Fire and subsequent flooding to submit a Notice of Loss.
