Clark County Family Assistance Center renamed Vegas Strong Resiliency Center
Las Vegas, NV: Las Vegas Sun reports – Those seeking to retrieve their items are asked to provide their contact information and a detailed description of the lost belongings. People can also email inquiries to the FBI’s Victim Services Division at LVFestivalAssist@fbi.gov. Photos of items sought can be attached to the emails.
Since Oct. 8 when personal effects first became available for retrieval, about 800 people have come to the Family Assistance Center to request personal effects left behind, a Clark County spokeswoman said. Belongings picked up have included cellphones, jewelry, wheelchairs and lawn chairs. The FBI has also received more than 2,000 online questionnaires regarding belongings lost at the concert.
On Monday, the operation will move to 1524 Pinto Lane, near Martin Luther King Boulevard and Alta Drive. The name of the center will be changed to the Vegas Strong Resiliency Center. Personal items will not be located at the Resiliency Center.
“The initial focus of the Family Assistance Center was to provide immediate services to family members and friends of loved ones who died in the incident or were directly involved,” said Clark County Deputy Fire Chief John Steinbeck, who serves as Clark County’s emergency manager. “Now we are transitioning to a more permanent service model to help people connect with services they may need over time to help them build resilience and strength in the aftermath of this incident.”
The FBI and Metro Police continue their investigation into the mass shooting. They ask anyone who witnessed or has any knowledge about the shooting to submit a tip.
Any person who was injured in or witnessed the shooting could be eligible for certain services and rights, including special funding to provide emergency assistance, crime victims compensation and counseling. Additional information about these resources by emailing LVFestivalAssist@fbi.gov.
