President Trump Approves California's Request for Presidential Major Disaster Declaration

Sacramento, CA -- California Gov. Jerry Brown has announced the president has approved his request.

Saturday, Brown called on President Donald Trump to help the state deal with the Carr Fire.

Inspecting the fire-damaged neighborhoods of Redding on Saturday, the governor also said California needs a statewide emergency alert system.

The declaration helps fire victims with unemployment assistance, food aid and legal and mental health counseling among other federal programs.

The declaration also makes counties and cities eligible for federal financial assistance and help with repairing the billions of dollars of damage done to infrastructure.

More immediately, the declaration will enable federal agencies to help battle the 17 major fires burning throughout the state.
