Flood Help Phone Numbers for Northern and Central California

This section of 1997 Floods, Northern California Information Resources contains phone number resources to official agencies, where to call for emergency help and assistance, rescue organizations, and volunteers.

Note: Please check telephone directory information if a phone number is no longer valid since phone numbers were listed January, 1997. If anyone knows of updated listing changes (and the new phone numbers) please contact me and I will be happy to update this list.

Important: Please do not rely on this information as your only source of information in case of emergency. I do periodically update or remove dead Web site links, but most phone numbers and addresses are from 1997 and may or may not be accurate at this point. This Web site remains online for information and for historical record purposes only, not as a source for current emergency information.
