Final #JeffcoFlood Blog Post: Recovery and Resilience

Jefferson County communities are moving forward in an attitude of recovery and resilience.

The Jefferson County Type III Incident Management Team (IMT) has been managing the response to the #JeffcoFlood for the last week. The primary objective of this team was to manage the county's response and to lead the county into the recovery phase.

Jefferson County communities are showing their resilience as they quickly bounce back from the damages inflicted by the #JeffcoFlood.  As we enter the recovery phase the role of the Jefferson County Type III IMT will decrease as regular Jefferson County departments take the lead on further recovery efforts.

Residents affected by the #JeffcoFlood can now receive information directly from the county via http://jeffco.us/disaster-recovery/.  This site will take the place of the JCSO Emergency Blog.  As such this will be the final #JeffcoFlood update.

The #JeffcoFlood Google map will no longer be updated.  We will maintain the map in its current state (9/18) so that it can viewed for historical purposes.  For a list of current, live, road closures please visit http://jeffco.us/road-and-bridge/.
