Larkfield Resilience

Larkfield Fire Survivors Recognize One Year Tubbs Fire Anniversary

Oct 8, 2018

Share:

On the one-year anniversary of the Tubbs Fire, fire survivors from the Larkfield area, located north of Santa Rosa in unincorporated Sonoma County, have joined together to announce the creation of the Larkfield Resilience Fund(LRF).  The LRF is a 501 c(3) non-profit formed with a seven-member board of directors made up of fire survivors from Larkfield with a mission to generate funding to help rebuild resilient neighborhoods. 

More than 500 homes in the Larkfield area were destroyed by the Tubbs Fire in October 2017.  The LRF has launched a website (www.larkfieldfund.com) to increase awareness about the devastation caused in Larkfield and generate funds to rebuild resilient neighborhoods.

Funding opportunities that currently exist include projects such as:

Greening Larkfield: Greening Larkfield, an effort with the mission of planting up to 200 36-inch boxed trees in the front yards of homes being rebuilt.  All the urban landscape in Larkfield was destroyed by the Tubbs Fire.

Citizens Organized to Prepare for Emergencies (COPE) program: The mission of COPE is to encourage residents, families, and neighborhoods to become and remain better prepared to respond to and recover from emergency situations. This includes developing individual response plans, maintaining individual emergency supply kits, and neighbors getting to know and plan with other neighbors in their community.

Fire Cameras: The placement of a fire camera in the Larkfield area would help alert first responders to a fire.  A network of fire cameras is being installed throughout Sonoma County by PG&E and other government entities.  A fire camera specifically placed in the Larkfield area would protect the most populated urban community in unincorporated Sonoma County.

Emergency Alert Siren: The Larkfield area does not currently have an active emergency alert siren.  A siren would help alert residents of an emergency, such as a fire, when cellular phones and other modes of communications may not be available or effective. 

Donations to the LRF may be made on its website or by contacting a member of the board of directors.  The LRF is so new that our federal ID is still pending but on its way! We can still receive donations as we move forward.
