The Fire Victim Trust will evaluate, administer, process, and resolve eligible claims arising from the 2015 Butte Fire, 2017 North Bay Fires, and 2018 Camp Fire. Under the direction of the Trustee, the Honorable John K. Trotter (Ret.), and the Claims Administrator, Cathy Yanni, the Fire Victim Trust will provide an efficient and equitable process to review and compensate Fire Victims for both economic and non-economic damages caused by these fires, including destruction or damage to real estate and personal property, additional living expenses, lost wages, business losses, personal injury or death and related medical expenses, and emotional distress.

You can access the Claims Questionnaire and upload supporting documentation for the asserted claims through your secure Portal on the Claimant Details screen. The deadline to submit a completed Claims Questionnaire and supporting documentation was 2/26/21.
