Disaster Response

2-1-1 is a free phone number and online database that connects Californians quickly and effectively to existing health and human service programs, joblessness support and disaster response information in their communities. It is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and in 150 different languages. The goal of 2-1-1 California is to ensure all California residents have access to 2-1-1 through a connected, statewide network. Currently, 92 percent of the state’s population has access to 2-1-1. Nationally, 2-1-1 covers 80 percent of the US population. Although not all counties have activated the 211 information number, it is being used in at least thirty counties. Dial 211 to see if your county has it.
