CHICO, Calif. -- The Home Builders Resource Expo is opening this weekend at the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds in Chico.
More than a hundred exhibitors will talk about home building and rebuilding after a wildfire. FEMA, HUD and Cal OES will be there to answer questions.
We spoke with Paradise Council Member Melissa Schuster about why she organized this event.
"We wanted to give people a gentle first step, so this is your first step. Come here, you will learn what your next steps are and where to go from here," said Melissa Schuster, a Paradise town council member and organizer for the expo.
"It's great. It's good to have something like this where we can get the information we need," said Vergie Myers, who is rebuilding in Paradise. "We can see all the support which really encourages us to rebuild."
The expo runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Chico's Silver Dollar Fairgrounds. Admission is free.
