Disaster and Emergency Services
During disasters, 2-1-1 provides critical information for the public regarding food and shelter, evacuation routes, and more. In the days and weeks of recovery that follow, 2-1-1 is the key resource for information on housing, family support services, financial assistance and other resources for those affected by the disaster. 2-1-1 works with Sacramento County’s Office of Emergency Services to provide up-to-date public information to the community during an emergency, rumor control, and feedback to emergency officials on service gaps.
2-1-1 Sacramento’s resources database containing information on more than 1,600 programs and services in the greater Sacramento area is available online. You can search this user-friendly site for information about services by program, agency name, ZIP Code, category and specific service. You can access this resource in the Get Help section of the 2-1-1 Sacramento website, http://www.211sacramento.org/.
2-1-1 can produce customized contact lists for agencies in its database in Excel spreadsheet format or mail-ready labels.
