Tachi Palace and the Santa Rosa Rancheria Tachi Yokut Tribe are assisting the fire relief efforts in the area through both a monetary donation and the purchase of a brand new fire engine for Kings County.

The goal of the two donations is to assist those in need in the local area and to help keep the community safe as fire and drought continue to threaten the region.

On August 26th, Tachi Palace General Manager Willie Barrios will present a check in the amount of $5,000 to the Central Valley Red Cross to assist those affected by recent fires, including the Coalinga Mineral Fire, Cedar Fire, and Chimney Fire. Thousands of local residents have been evacuated while firefighters work to contain each blaze. Every dollar of this donation will go toward helping those in need of assistance.

Tachi Palace General Manager Willie Barrios stated, “We want to help those who have been affected by the fires in our outlying communities. Our fire fighters are working day and night to get these contained, and Tachi Palace supports and appreciates all they do. We hope this donation will help those in need.”

In addition to this donation, the Santa Rosa Rancheria Tachi Yokut Tribe recently made a tremendous contribution to local fire and rescue community with the purchase of a new Pierce Pump Fire Engine for Kings County.

At a price of $586,000, this is the second fire truck the tribe has purchased for the county.
