Advisory

Newaygo County Flood Recovery

March 22nd, 2019
Flood Recovery
 
 
Our community has been devastated by widespread flooding. This remains an active emergency in many areas. Newaygo County is under a Local Disaster Declaration. This allows emergency officials to implement emergency protective measures, help bring in additional resources, and start the request for additional assistance. Our main concern is the safety of you and your family.
 
If your home has sustained damage, please report it by filing a report at http://www.countyofnewaygo.com/ReportDamage.aspx
 
WHAT IS HAPPENING NOW:
 
Newaygo County Emergency Services is currently coordinating with Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD). 
 
On Monday, the Southern Baptist Disaster Relief Team will begin providing volunteer labor services to Newaygo county residents.  World Renew, will also coordinate volunteers to begin services aimed at removing drywall, insulation, and spraying to prevent mold growth.
 
All volunteer teams will be working from the damage reports provided by residents of Newaygo County.
 
 
Small Business Administration
 
Governor Gretchen Whitmer has requested the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) conduct damage assessments for Newaygo County to pave the way for possible future assistance.
 
SBA teams will be in Newaygo County on Tuesday, March 26th to conduct assessments of the area.
