SACRAMENTO – A FEMA Mobile Registration Intake Center is open in Covelo Friday, Dec. 4, through Sunday, Dec. 6, to serve Mendocino County wildfire survivors.
The intake center is part of the ongoing response and recovery mission for FEMA and the state of California to assist survivors with disaster information.
It is located at Round Valley Public Library, 23925 Howard St., Covelo CA 95428. It will be open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Dec. 4, Saturday, Dec. 5, and Sunday, Dec. 6.
The center is a temporary site to support survivors with disaster information. It offers an optional opportunity for survivors to register, especially those without access to internet or telephone service.
Survivors also may register with FEMA in one of three ways:
- Online at DisasterAssistance.gov;
- By downloading the FEMA app to a smartphone or tablet; or
- By calling the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362 (TTY 800-462-7585) between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. PST. Those who use a relay service such as a videophone, Innocaption or CapTel, should provide FEMA with the specific number assigned to that service when they register.
- The helpline staff can also answer questions about applications already submitted.
- Deadline to register for assistance under DR-4558 is Dec. 11, 2020.
Registration enables FEMA to determine residents’ eligibility for financial assistance that may include rent, home repair, home replacement and other serious disaster-related needs such as childcare, transportation and medical, funeral or dental expenses.
