Residents needing tree and debris removal asked to register for volunteer services

Lexington Emergency Management wants to hear from residents who have exhausted their ability to clear storm debris from private property. This includes elderly residents, those who are medically fragile and those with physical or developmental disabilities. This volunteer service will extend to persons who have no other means for debris removal.

Emergency Management is working with volunteer agencies who MAY be able to send debris, brush and tree clearing workers to Lexington for a series of work days. While nothing is scheduled at this time, we want to begin the registration process in order to demonstrate the need.

Once registration takes place, the volunteer agency will determine if it can assign work crews to Lexington to meet the debris removal needs. This is ONLY for Fayette County residents.

To register, please call LexCall at 859-425-2255, Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Preparedness information is also available via the Lexington Emergency Management Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.
