Additional shelter opens at Lassen High School due to Dixie Fire evacuations

Due to the ongoing mandatory evacuation orders in Plumas and Lassen Counties, the
following shelter sites have been established, according to the Lassen County Health and Social Services Department:

  • Lassen Community College 478-200 CA-139, Susanville, CA Emergency Shelter Line (530) 250-9004
  • Lassen High School 1110 Main Street, Susanville, Emergency Shelter Line (530) 250-9004

In order to receive shelter services and usage of available facilities, registration is required.
We are requesting that anyone arriving at the shelter bring their medication and medical equipment (walkers, breathing machines, etc.), clothing for multiple days, and important papers such as insurance cards.

Please keep in mind all weapons, drugs, alcohol and personal bedding are not permitted at the shelter.

Animals needing shelter can be housed at the Lassen County Fairgrounds. Liability, feed, security, and care of animals housed at the Fairgrounds are the sole responsibility of the animal’s owner. Check-in will be available at the Fair Office during normal business hours.

If you have any questions about animal sheltering, please contact Fair Manager, Kaitlyn Downing at (530) 588-8627.

More information will be released as it becomes available.


**Corrected: Earlier press statements listed the fairgrounds as an additional shelter. The new shelter is at Lassen High School.
