SC 2-1-1 is working in collaboration with Crisis Cleanup to connect homeowners with, post-storm services. Residents who need help with debris removal, and other clean-up services as a result of Hurricane Irma should call 2-1-1 on weekdays between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM to be entered into the Crisis Cleanup system.
Homeowners are linked with reputable and vetted relief agencies that assist in chainsaw work and debris clearing, as they are available. All services are free, but service is not guaranteed due to the availability of volunteer teams. These relief agencies have assisted with recovery efforts after the October 2015 Floods and Hurricane Matthew.
Individuals searching for other general information on disaster resources can call the three-digit telephone number, 2-1-1, from a landline or mobile phone; search the website http://www.SC211.org; or use the app.
The SC 2-1-1 app is available for download in Google Play and the App Store. It is free to download and free to use.
Anyone interested in volunteering with Hurricane Irma clean-up, but not affiliated with an organization, should go to www.VolunteerSC.org. Organizations looking for additional help will post opportunities and seek volunteers. Most organizations require volunteers to undergo background checks and training to ensure the safety of survivors.
