MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Memphis Office of Emergency Management announced Sunday that Crisis Cleanup has opened up a hotline for West Tennessee residents who need assistance recovering from the February 3 ice storm. 

The disaster relief organization said they will provide assistance to those in need of fallen tree removal, roof tarping, mold mitigation and drywall, flooring and appliance removal. 

Crisis Cleanup said they will connect those in need with local volunteers from relief organizations, community groups and faith communities.

They said that all services are free, but service is not guaranteed due to the "overwhelming need."
