The Amador County Sheriff's Office of Emergency Services reminds residents of the Community Sandbag Program.
The County will provide a bags and sand to Amador County Residents only, with a suggested (20) bag maximum limit on a self- serve basis for localized flooding emergencies. A pile of sand and bags are located in the Airport parking lot near the County General Services Administration Building in Martell. All residents need to do is bring a shovel to fill the sandbags. The sand and bags are there for unplanned emergencies.
For more information on the County Community Sandbag Program, contact Sergeant John Silva, Amador County Sheriff's Office of Emergency Services at 223-6384.
In addition to the County program, the Cities of Ione, Jackson, and Sutter Creek are offering a similar program to their residents; contact your City Hall for more information.
