Information Concerning Volunteer Opportunities

Due to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, many agencies may experience inquiry calls from volunteers and voluntary organizations requesting information to assist with environmental clean-up. All calls for volunteers should be directed to 2-1-1 Alabama by dialing 2-1-1. Alternately, 2-1-1 operators can be reached by dialing 1-888-421-1266. This provides a central site to capture the data and ability to follow up in the event volunteers are needed. The Emergency Management Agencies in Baldwin and Mobile Counties are referring calls to 2-1-1 as well.

Alabama is prepared in the unlikely event our coast is impacted; however, volunteers are not needed at this time and are strongly discouraged from self deploying to the Alabama coast. The Governor's Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives will remain in contact with Federal, State, and local agencies, as well as British Petroleum to coordinate any volunteer response should the need arise.
