United Way, in collaboration with the Grand County Office of Emergency Management and the Grand County Council on Aging, announces service of 211. This service could positively impact any individual living in the Grand County area that may require assistance in the event of an evacuation or extended in-place sheltering. By evaluating your own personal needs, you and your loved ones can be better prepared. Every individual can take steps to prepare for potential emergency situations.
You can call 211 and ask to register yourself, or a loved one, for the Special Needs Population Registry. Your voluntary participation in the Grand County 211 Registry will allow Grand County responders to be better prepared to respond with the limited resources available.
