Due to the re-opening of all fire zones in the River and Carmel fires, all Monterey County Evacuation Shelters and Centers are now closing. The Monterey Conference Center, which had been used as an evacuation center, has transitioned to host a Local Assistance Center for those impacted by the fires.
The In-Person Local Assistance Center will be open at the Monterey Conference Center at 1 Portola Plaza in Monterey, near Pacific Avenue from Sunday August 30th until Saturday September 5th. Open daily from 10am to 8pm. Free parking. COVID-19 protocols are in place.
Temporary housing for fire evacuees is still available at the Asilomar Hotel and Conference Grounds. You must check in at the Monterey Conference Center to be directed to these accommodations. These rooms are at no charge to evacuees and meals are provided.
