September is National Preparedness Month!

In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, it is more important than ever to be prepared for a Natural Disaster. We are all able to help first responders in our community by training ourselves how to respond during an emergency and what to do when disaster strikes.

Ready.Gov and Vermont Emergency Management
Vermont 2-1-1 also has further resources for
Disaster Preparedness Information in our Database!

In 2016, what were Vermonters most in need of?

Each year, we evaluate the services Vermonters were referred to the most and publish them as our Barometer of Community Needs. Curious about which services made the Top 10? Click here to find out!


Vermont 2-1-1 is the number to dial to find out about hundreds of important community resources, like emergency food and shelter, disability services, counseling, senior services, health care, child care, drug and alcohol programs, legal assistance, transportation agencies, educational and volunteer opportunities, and much more.


2-1-1 is not an emergency number like 9-1-1, nor is it directory assistance like 4-1-1.


2-1-1 is your first step toward solving everyday problems or

when you are facing difficult times.

It’s a free service. It’s confidential. It’s 24/7.
