SAN BERNARDINO – Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown (D-San Bernardino) issued the following statement today on the Blue Cut Fire:
“I am saddened by the destruction caused by the Blue Cut Fire that has burned 30,000 acres overnight and caused 80,000 people to evacuate their homes. As a community, we all must do what we can to help the victims of this devastating fire. My office is currently working with the American Red Cross and local public safety officials to provide assistance and resources to the victims of this terrible tragedy. I would like to commend the invaluable role of our first responders as they continue to fight the Blue Cut Fire and maintain the safety of our residents. I appreciate their dedication, tireless efforts and exceptional service.
As a result of the Governor declaring a state of emergency in San Bernardino County, I’m encouraging all constituents in the 47th Assembly District to support the Red Cross’ recovery effort by donating clothes to your nearest Salvation Army location or by visiting the American Red Cross website and making a monetary donation towards helping those displaced by the Blue Cut Fire disaster. For more information, please contact the American Red Cross at (909) 888-1481.”
Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown represents the 47th Assembly District, which includes Colton, Fontana, Grand Terrace, Rialto, San Bernardino, and the unincorporated communities of Bloomington and Muscoy.
