Disaster Assistance

Boulder County is transitioning our Marshall Fire response, resources, and staffing from immediate emergency assistance to longer-term recovery. All organizations that have been at the Disaster Assistance Center in Lafayette will continue to provide services at their traditional locations and online, and some are relocating their disaster assistance work to the Marshall Fire Donations and Resource Center at Flatirons Crossing Mall in Broomfield (visit Disaster Assistance Center Resources for a full list of all organizations that have been at the Disaster Assistance Center).

Some federal and state operations, such as FEMA and the Small Business Administration, will remain onsite at 1755 S. Public Road in Lafayette. Read more about these changes.
