EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS

When disaster strikes, 2-1-1 is there to connect you to information, relief, and recovery resources. We'll help answer your questions and provide a central place for updated information as conditions change. There will be no more searching to find the numbers for countless hotlines which spring up during a crisis. One call to 2-1-1 will connect you with a friendly voice and put you on the path to the information you need.

Building Capacity to Meet Regional Needs

A major earthquake is always a possibility in California. Now we have new threats, such as terrorism, West Nile virus and the avian influenza. These emergencies call for a central source of information where you can turn to get or give help. 2-1-1 is that place for our community.

2-1-1 is currently being built into the infrastructure of Santa Clara County's disaster response program. In the event of a regional disaster, 2-1-1 will be mobilized as the county's central source for information on relief and recovery activities.
