A Debris Removal Operations Center opened July 20 in Lake Isabella to assist residents with ash and debris removal from properties destroyed by the Erskine Fire.


The Kern County Public Health Services Department and the State of California are offering a hazmat removal and voluntary debris and ash cleanup assistance program at no cost to qualified residents whose property was affected by the Erskine Fire. The purpose of the program is to assist in getting affected properties clean, safe and ready to rebuild.



Located at 5540 Lake Isabella Blvd, Suite E3, this center is open to the public Monday through Friday from 8am to 4:30pm for the duration of the cleanup. Walk-ins are welcome and no appointments are necessary. This center will serve as the contact point for residents losing their homes in the Erskine Fire. Visitors to the center will be able to receive information on the anticipated dates that their property will be cleaned, review and submit Right of Entry forms, and receive other pertinent information related to the program.


This project is expected to last 3 to 4 months.
