How 2-1-1 responds to a mass disaster–the wildfires in Southern California

10.26.2007 | UNCATEGORIZED

The San Diego County 2-1-1 answered over 25,000 calls by Wednesday, October 24. They are being assisted by over 700 volunteers to provide the critical role of local/regional 2-1-1s in disaster response, before, during, and well after any event.

Central Texas’ own 2-1-1 has received 2 calls from individuals who evacuated to Texas from California.
