Call Hurricane Home Cleanup Hotline With Requests For Help
Reputable relief agencies may offer free services such as tarping roofs, cutting trees, clearing debris and mucking out. Calling the hotline does not guarantee services as they are based on what resources are available.
The hotline is provided by Crisis Cleanup and has been coordinated by Florida and Brevard Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster and the Brevard Long Term Recovery Coalition.
Information about other post-hurricane assistance will be provided by the Community Information Hotline, which can be reached by dialing 2-1-1. It is a partnership of Brevard County Emergency Management and 2-1-1 Brevard.
People who want to volunteer after Irma should register at the United Way of Brevard website: uwbrevard.org.
