Luján Launches Fire Resource Guide for New Mexicans
Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.) launched a Fire Resource Guide to provide New Mexicans impacted by the wildfires with the most up-to-date information on evacuation shelters, hotline numbers, and more. The resource guide can be found on the Senator’s homepage at lujan.senate.gov and will continue to be updated as additional resources become available.
Last week, Senator Luján joined President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris to sign a Major Disaster Declaration so much needed funding and services can be provided on-the-ground to local communities affected by the historic wildfires. This past weekend, Senator Luján visited an evacuation center in Peñasco to meet with New Mexicans seeking shelter.
“As wildfires continue to threaten the livelihood of our state and our loved ones, it’s critical New Mexicans have access to the most relevant information to stay safe and protected,” said Senator Luján. “My team has put together a comprehensive guide that has the latest evacuation guidance, hotline numbers, shelter sites, livestock and animal shelters, in addition to more information that can be found on my website. Please stay up-to-date and follow evacuation protocols if ordered – it will save lives.”
“I will continue working with Governor Lujan Grisham, the Biden administration, and local and federal leaders to ensure New Mexicans receive federal assistance where it is needed most.”
