Sonoma County Information

Sonoma County is very large - more than one million acres in size. The majority of Sonoma County businesses remain open. More than 90% of the county is unaffected by the fires.

A list of businesses that are currently open is here.

Our thoughts are with all those affected by the fires in Sonoma, Napa, Lake and Mendocino Counties. Several fires are currently burning in Sonoma County, in both urban and rural areas. The fires are mainly in eastern Sonoma County – parts of Sonoma Valley and Santa Rosa. The fires and fire damage isn’t spread throughout the entire county.

If you’ve planned a trip to the area, please contact your lodging provider before traveling, to see if it’s located in an affected area. The Sonoma County Airport is open.

Sonoma County Tourism staff is assessing damages sustained to tourism businesses and will provide updates as more information is available. Visit SonomaCounty.com/fires. This will be updated as information is available.

Where to offer/get help:

Donate:

The Community Foundation of Sonoma County's Resilience Fund

Community Foundation Sonoma County has launched the Sonoma County Resilience Fund to address the mid to long-term needs of our community. As funders with over 30 years of experience in grantmaking in Sonoma County, we will rely on our thorough due diligence process to identify and vet organizations to receive funding. While we cannot yet predict what the greatest needs will be, in other communities recovery efforts have included basic needs as well as longer term economic, health and social supports. Examples have included support for renters, case management services, animal welfare and capacity-building for nonprofits taking on new or expanded roles in disaster relief.

Redwood Credit Union North Bay Fire Relief

Redwood Credit Union (RCU), in partnership with RCU Community Fund, The Press Democrat, and Senator Mike McGuire, is now accepting financial donations to aid relief efforts and assist victims of the 2017 North Bay fires. 100% of your donations will go directly to support those affected by the fires. Because the devastating fires affected numerous counties, you will have the opportunity to donate to the county of your choosing, including Sonoma, Napa, Mendocino, and Lake County. You may also choose to donate to all counties (your funds will be distributed equally among all four counties).
