Spread the word!!

Amador County has requested local residents and businesses with substantial damages resulting from recent storms to complete an online damage report form. Your participation is appreciated to help the county collect the most accurate record of total losses to our local community. This information will be used to support the counties' efforts to obtain further funding through the California Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) to assist our community in this difficult time.

Residents and business owners are highly encouraged to complete the submission online. However, if a hard copy is needed, handouts are available at Jackson City Hall (33 Broadway) and must be returned to the Amador County Sheriff's Office at 700 Court Street.

Amador Community Foundation donated $12,500 in partnership with the City of Jackson to aid those affected from the winter storms and recent flooding.

We are thrilled to support the frontline nonprofit work of Society of St. Vincent de Paul. They have been actively helping our community who have experienced losses from the recent storms and flooding.

Our community has a history of coming together in times of disaster. The disaster fund originated during the Butte fire and most recently was deployed to help those who lost their jobs from the Ampine Fire.
If you would like to donate to our Disaster Relief Fund. Call us at 209-223-2148, mail a check to Po Box 1154, Jackson, CA 95642 (memo: Disaster Relief Fund)or donate online at
