Concord: Ash/Debris Cleanup Advisory

Last updated: April 24, 2018, 9:41 am

The large structure fire in Concord consisted primarily of construction materials (predominately wood). Residents should avoid direct contact and inhalation of ash/debris that was produced by the fire. Residents may use a mild soap and water to clean up ash/debris. To minimize dust generation, residents should consider lightly dampening ash/debris prior to commencing sweeping activities. Swept up ash/debris may be placed in a standard household trash receptacle. Any towels or cleaning materials should be rinsed in a sink that drains to a sanitation sewer. Residents should avoid washing or sweeping ash/debris into storm drains, as this will result in pollution accumulating in nearby creeks and rivers.

Healthy Families

The Healthy Families Program (HFP) is a state program that provides low-cost medical, dental, and vision insurance for low-income and middle-income children.

**IMPORTANT NOTICE**: A new law in California says that children in HFP will move to Medi-Cal. This move will take place over one year, starting no sooner than January 1, 2013. HFP is no longer accepting new applications. However, the current enrollment for AIM babies will not change.

If your child was already enrolled in HFP, your child will transition to Medi-Cal in one of four phases over the course of the year. You will receive information from the State about when the move to Medi-Cal will happen for your child and what you may need to do. Currently, Contra Costa children are scheduled to transition no sooner than March 1, 2013.

Please visit the State website to view Frequently Asked Questions regarding this transition. HFP subscribers can contact the HFP Call Center toll-free at 1-866-848-9166. Non-HFP individuals can contact toll-free at 1-800-880-5305.
