SANTA FE, NM -- The State of New Mexico Disaster Case Management Team and the Hermit’s Peak/Calf Canyon Claims Office Advocate Team will host an Advocate Resource Fair in Mora on Feb. 17. The fair is open to everyone; however, it is specifically designed for people affected by the Hermit’s Peak/Calf Canyon Fire and subsequent flooding. The fair runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Ledoux Volunteer Fire Dept.
