November 15, 2018 - 10:00 am

The VA Northern California Health Care System has opened clinics in the towns of Chico and Yuba City to help any veterans impacted by the Camp Fire.

Mobile Vet Centers are in full operation, including nurses, social workers and pharmacists.  The Chico VA Clinic is also offering telehealth services - online doctor appointments - which you can access through a smartphone, tablet or computer if you can't get to the clinic itself.  

They're also putting out general information for veterans who are in distress, including how to report a missing person, how to file for FEMA assistance, and where to get free food.

If you are affected by the wildfires and rely on VA services, here is information on how VA can help you.

For 24/7 Veteran assistance, call 1-800-382-8387.

For the Veteran Benefits helpline, call 1-800-827-1000.
