Tri Counties Bank Starts Camp Fire Victim’s Fund with $25,000 Donation
Tri Counties Bank has started the Camp Fire Fund 2018 account with an initial deposit of $25,000 to benefit victims of the fires ravaging our communities in the Paradise, California area.
The bank encourages others to make donations to the Camp Fire Fund 2018 at any Tri Counties Bank branch or donate online at https://www.gofundme.com/tcb-2018-camp-fire-fund
These funds will be distributed to people in need through local non-profit emergency relief agencies directly serving fire victims with immediate needs. These non-profit organizations have been vetted as trusted and well-managed direct emergency service providers and include:
- United Way of Northern California
- The Salvation Army
- Northern Valley Catholic Social Services
"We are committed to supporting our communities impacted by the wildfires," said Richard Smith, President and CEO of Tri Counties Bank. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the families affected, and our gratitude goes out to the brave firefighters and first responders who are battling to contain these devastating fires.”
Important Information from FEMA
Remember to protect yourself, and the people you care about, from disaster fraud. Here’s what you should do if:
You try to register for FEMA assistance online, but you receive a verification error. You should call FEMA at 800-621-3362 to complete your registration with a FEMA representative who can tell you the reason for the verification error. If you suspect fraud, contact the Disaster Fraud Hotline at 866-720-5721. You can also report fraud to the Federal Trade Commission at www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov.
You receive a call from someone asking to verify your FEMA registration, but you did not apply for FEMA assistance. You may report the name and phone number of the person calling to the Disaster Fraud Hotline at 866-720-5721. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with anyone you encounter claiming to be an emergency management official, do not give out personal information, and contact local law enforcement. All FEMA employees will have a FEMA Badge.
An inspector comes to your home without a FEMA photo ID. Do not let someone in your home who claims to be a FEMA inspector but does not have a FEMA photo ID. Always ask to see a FEMA photo ID badge. A FEMA shirt or jacket is not proof of identity. All FEMA representatives, including our contracted inspectors, will have a laminated photo ID. If unsure, call FEMA at 800-621-3362 (FEMA).
Someone comes to your home to conduct an inspection, but asks for money before starting. Federal and state workers do not ask for—or accept—money. FEMA representatives will never charge for disaster assistance, home inspections, or for help filling out applications. Stay alert for false promises to speed up the insurance, disaster assistance, or building permit process.
