BEND, OR -- The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Management is working with the state to identify potential economic losses resulting from late summer wildfires. The Governor can request assistance from the Small Business Administration in the form of an Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL), if made aware of the loss.
