Concord: Ash/Debris Cleanup Advisory

Last updated: April 24, 2018, 9:41 am

The large structure fire in Concord consisted primarily of construction materials (predominately wood). Residents should avoid direct contact and inhalation of ash/debris that was produced by the fire. Residents may use a mild soap and water to clean up ash/debris. To minimize dust generation, residents should consider lightly dampening ash/debris prior to commencing sweeping activities. Swept up ash/debris may be placed in a standard household trash receptacle. Any towels or cleaning materials should be rinsed in a sink that drains to a sanitation sewer. Residents should avoid washing or sweeping ash/debris into storm drains, as this will result in pollution accumulating in nearby creeks and rivers.

Continuum of Care

Project Homeless Connect

In Contra Costa, Project Homeless Connect is held annually and moves around to each of the three major regions of the county - Central County, East County and West County with the goals to 1) improve access to services and housing for homeless adults, youth and families, 2) improve the homeless system of care through collaboration and the sharing of best practices, and 3) partner with volunteers, services providers, faith-based organizations, the business community, and corporations to increase awareness and secure community involvement, commitment, and investment in ending homelessness.

To meet these goals, the County Homeless Program partners with over 250 services providers, businesses and community volunteers to provide 1000 participants with free services that include medical care, substance abuse and mental health counseling, family services, shelter, legal assistance, state-issued identification cards, and haircuts.
