County Ordering Process for FURS Outreach Materials:

Family Urgent Response System promotional materials are now available for distribution to county child welfare and probation agencies through the CDSS Warehouse. Orders can be placed through the Gen 727B County Forms Order. The Gen 727B County Forms Order is available online and can be submitted electronically by clicking on the "submit" button on the top of the form to complete your order. The order form will be sent automatically to the CDSS Warehouse's e-mail box as soon as it is submitted by clicking the "submit" button. Once the order has been received by the CDSS Warehouse staff, an order number will be assigned and a confirmation reply will be sent back to the sender. If you do not receive a confirmation, you may want to contact the Warehouse at: admbsbwh@dss.ca.gov to verify the order was received. Please note that no more than 5,000 of each material type can be requested per order, with the exception of translated flyers which are in shorter supply and must be requested in smaller quantities.

Please note that ordering materials from the CDSS Warehouse is free with no cost to the county. Considering this, please list CDSS in the “BILL TO” section of the form as shown in the example below. Please ensure that the order form has fields outlined in red, which indicates that the browser you are using will submit the form - note that Internet Explorer is recommended.
