Disaster Assistance

Many 2-1-1 locations partner with Homeland Security, Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and essential emergency management programs in your community to provide answers, services and relief in times of natural or man-made disasters.

We offer information on disaster preparedness, up-to-the-minute information on road closures and evacuation routes and shelters, disaster relief assistance and recovery resources.

Your local 2-1-1 may also provide information on disaster-related volunteer opportunities and relief efforts so you can put your time and talent to work in the areas where they’re needed most and improve the lives of others in your community.
