WAYNE COUNTY, Mich. - Wayne County residents can now call 2-1-1 to find help cleaning up debris from flood-damaged homes.
Operators will connect residents with volunteer and faith-based organizations that are able to assist them with debris clean-up. The 2-1-1 hotline operates daily from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
"The 2-1-1 service can help our seniors and other residents who are unable to clean out debris themselves find the assistance they need to safely restore their homes," said Wayne County Executive Warren C. Evans. "Flood-damaged items must be removed to ensure homes are safe from unhealthy mold and other toxins. I encourage any resident who needs help removing debris to call 2-1-1."
At this time, 2-1-1 cannot assist residents seeking financial help for flood damage. Residents who do not need assistance with debris removal should not call 2-1-1 about flood-related issues at this time.
