The Nevada Office of Emergency Services offers free sand and sandbags for residents of Nevada County.
The location of the sand and bags is next to the Nevada County Warehouse on the corner of Highway 49 and East Broad St. in Nevada City. Residents must bring a strong back and their own shovel to fill the sandbags with sand.
Officials do ask that residents only take what they plan to use for the protection of their personal property. This will enable us to continue to offer this free service.
