There are currently several wildfires in Interior Alaska that are posing a potential threat to communities within the TCC Region. TCC's Emergency Response Team is currently monitoring the situation and coordinating with community members to ensure their needs are met and their community is safe. TCC has always been willing to assist communities in disaster situations by providing relief supplies to villages before government or other relief organizations can, coordinating with state and federal agencies, and assisting individuals with recovery.
TCC is accepting monetary donations at this time to assist with housing and food for those impacted by the wild fires.
