(Camden, NJ) – Approximately 200 residents received assistance at the Multi-Agency Resource Center (MARC) in Gloucester City yesterday, facilitated by the Camden County Office of Emergency Management and the Gloucester County OEM. The MARC provided recovery resources for residents of both counties affected by rain-induced flooding over the past several weeks.
“The most important thing is that folks are getting educated on how to properly remediate their homes after these major events,” said Freeholder Jonathan Young, liaison to the Department of Public Safety. “Our focus is on making sure that the homes impacted by flood waters are being cleaned and prepared for re-entry. This helps to prevent future illness and health problems related to dirty water.”
Partner resources available at the MARC included service organizations such as the American Red Cross, Team Rubicon, Catholic Charities USA, and others. Also present were Camden and Gloucester County agencies, including Office of Emergency Management.
Recourses remain available to those who need them. For additional information about available services and resources, please visit NJ211.org or call 2-1-1. You can also reach the Camden County Office of Emergency Management by calling (856) 783-4808.
