Lincoln County Emergency Management is looking for assistance from the community with two public service requests.

Occasionally people traveling through our county encounter an emergency situation. Sometimes there are language barriers that hinder first responders in providing assistance. The office of emergency management is seeking people who have foreign language skills and are willing to volunteer in emergency situations to assist with translation issues.

Additionally there is an occasional need for good, working wheelchairs. If you have a wheelchair in good working condition and no longer have a need for it, please consider donating it to provide assistance to those with mobility issues in emergency situations.

If you can help with either being an interpreter or donating a wheelchair, please contact Lincoln County Emergency Manager, Rick Stever at 775-962-2376.
