For Sulphur Fire Survivors:  

If you lost your home or property to the Sulphur Fire, State and Federal resources are available to assist you with clearing your property so that you can begin the re-building process.  In order to allow those resources to work on your property, you MUST complete the “Right of Entry” form, and return it to the Lake County Environmental Health Department.

If your insurance policy has debris clearance coverage, you will receive a bill and must use those funds to contribute to the cost of clearing your property. If your insurance policy does not have debris clearance coverage, the assistance will be provided to you at no expense.

Further information is available from the Lake County Environmental Health Department.  Completed forms may be returned via e-mail, fax or hand delivered, per the instructions included on the form.
