Section 1

Oct. 28, 2020

Dear colleagues:

First and foremost, I hope that you and your families are safe from the Silverado and Blue Ridge fires. Please remain diligent and follow all official orders issued by local and county authorities. Your safety is our top priority. 

Human Resources has compiled a set of resources to aid our employees affected by the fires:

UCI Employee Wildfire Support Program

This page contains the following:

  • General Information Links
  • Silverado Fire Links
  • Blue Ridge Fire Links
  • EEC UCI Emergency Information 
  • Temporary Housing Resources
  • Mental and Emotional Support Resources
  • Emergency Loans and Financial Assistance
  • Paid Administrative Leave Information
  • Vacation Payout Information 
  • Chancellor’s Emergency Fund Information 

Additional resources will be added as they become available. Please check back often. 

The Anteater community is stronger together, and with the challenges these wildfires present, I encourage staff who are experiencing any loss to learn more about the resources available through the Chancellor’s Emergency Relief Fund. 

If you need any type of assistance and are not sure where to turn, please contact the Employee Experience Center (EEC) at 949.824.0500 or 



Ramona Agrela
Associate Chancellor and Chief Human Resources Executive
