Creek Fire Support

Creek Fire Support for our Campus CommunityServices Available to Those ImpactedHow You Can Help

To our CHSU campus community,

With the sudden and devastating expansion of the Creek Fire in local and mountain communities within Fresno, Madera, and Mariposa Counties, we recognize that some in our campus community may be directly impacted by evacuation orders and/or waiting to learn about the status of their homes, businesses, pets, etc.

Your CHSU community is here to help provide support or guidance during this difficult time. Those of you who may be impacted by one of the fires, employees can contact Carlita Romero-Begley, Vice President for Human Resources at cromerobegley@chsu.edu, HR@chsu.edu, or by Microsoft Teams communications and students can reach out to their college-specific Office of Student Affairs at mluallen@chsu.edu (COP) or sely@chsu.edu (COM). We will be happy to support you in any way possible.
