Chevron Opens Help Center for Angry Residents to Start Collecting Money

If you are one of those unfortunate Richmond residents who was burned (figuratively speaking) by the Chevron Refinery fire, you can start claiming your cash tomorrow.

Chevron officials say they are opening up a Help Center at the Nevin Community Center at 9 a.m. sharp.

"The

claims process has been set up through Crawford and Company, and we

intend to compensate our neighbors for medical and property expenses

incurred as a result of the incident," Chevron said in a statement released today.

If you can't make it to the Help Center, live operators will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week if you want to file a claim by phone. The number is 866-260-7881. And if you have already filed a claim by phone, you do not need to visit the Help Center.

Apparently, some residents claim they are getting phone calls from Chevron. To be clear, those are pranks; Chevron says it's "not proactively contacting anyone regarding filing claims.There are only two ways a claim can be filed -- by calling the above phone number or by visiting the help center located on Nevin Avenue."

Chevron adjusters are trying hard to respond to all claims within three days, and Chevron will strive to pay appropriate and reasonable claims, including out-of-pocket medical and property-damage expenses.

So go get your money -- you deserve it.

The Nevin Community Center is located at 598 Nevin Ave. in Richmond, and is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
