ESCAMBIA COUNTY, Fla. – Be Ready Alliance Coordinating for Emergencies (BRACE) is excited to announce that the BRACE Hurricane Sally Recovery Helpline will start receiving calls from business owners on Monday, May 3, 2021. The Help Line will continue to offer an entry point to field questions for Escambia County homeowners and will now also collect information from businesses about the need of Hurricane Sally assistance.
The disaster case management program or DCMP is the result of a partnership between BRACE, Escambia County Long Term Recovery Group, CareerSource EscaRosa, United Way of West Florida and the Gulf Coast Minority Chamber of Commerce (GCMCC).
The BRACE Hurricane Sally Recovery Helpline for Escambia County will operate from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday and can be reached by dialing 850-739-3939.
The Helpline will gather important information from impacted individuals/businesses that may still need help in recovering from Hurricane Sally. Callers should expect to participate in a need’s assessment process with an intake specialist. Once that step is completed, the caller will be assigned a disaster case manager to see if assistance can be provided. This process will include conversations about damage to property, financial support received from FEMA, SBA and/or insurance as well as other Hurricane Sally assistance received from other nonprofit organizations.
BRACE is a community-based disaster coalition that leads emergency preparedness, response, and recovery efforts in Escambia County. We train and mobilize volunteers and collaborate with local, regional, and national partners to ensure the disaster readiness of our community.
