Pfeiffer Fire Local needs/offerings…

Hello Big Sur!

First, as we always do, the town is pulling together. The following hotels and resorts are opening their doors to locals who have been displaced by the fire. If you’ve been displaced just show up or give a call and reserve a room for the night.

Riverside Campground & Cabins

Ripplewood Resort

Fernwood Resort

Big Sur Lodge

Treebones Resort

If you’re heading to town these kind, generous neighbors are also offering a gratis room for displaced Big Sur folks.

Hyatt Monterey – 831-233-4606 – Joelle Morris, might manager

Also Ryan Zen Lama of 831 Magazine has some hotel rooms he can access: 831-621-9490 # 701

Bernardus Lodge, Carmel valley –
415 W Carmel Valley Rd, Carmel Valley, CA 93924

Speak to General manager Mike Oprish

Cypress Inn, Carmel (pet friendly)
(831) 277-8748 Fiona Ayers (GM – Cypress Inn)

Lisa Goettel has launched the Big Sur Cert website which has a section for anyone offering support or whom needs support. Look in the Needs and Offerings sections.

Big Sur CERT, Community Emergency Response Team, Click This site will report information as it becomes available from fire or other agency officials or the County. This site may also be used to post resources you may offer or need such as temporary housing, clothing, food or make a donation to assist those who have lost their homes or jobs as a result of the fire. You may also donate directly by clicking HERE.

The Red Cross is set up at the Grange Hall. They have snacks available. I understand the SPCA will be available with help for displaced pets but when I spoke with the Red Cross team at the Multi-Agency Facility press meeting this evening they didn’t know about this so perhaps they just weren’t in place yet.

We will be posting information to the Big Sur Blog.

We know how to do this. Be safe and take care of each other.
