Dona Ana County Assisting in Fire Support

Doña Ana County is showing support to our neighbors in Lincoln and Otero counties in the midst of wildfires in the Village of Ruidoso and Mescalero Apache Reservation. We have already mobilized resources to provide the following assistance:

• The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is working with the American Red Cross to support disaster shelters in the Roswell area. They are transporting a supplies trailer for the Red Cross, along with an OEM shelter support trailer. OEM is also taking shelter supplies for 40 pets/animals, including portable kennels.

• The Fire Rescue Department will assist with controlling and extinguishing the wildfires.

• Animal Control personnel will provide an emergency rescue and shelter trailer complete with animal cages.

To assist those affected by the wildfires and mandatory evacuation, cash donations can be made to the Greatest Needs Impact Fund here:…. This fund will provide financial resources to support the immediate and long-term recovery needs for the people, animals and places affected by the wildfires.
