SACRAMENTO – A FEMA Mobile Registration Intake Center is open Thursday-Saturday, Oct. 29-31, in San Diego County to serve Valley Fire survivors.
The center is part of the ongoing response and recovery mission for FEMA and the State of California to support survivors with uninsured losses.
It is located at Rancho San Diego Library, 11555 Via Rancho San Diego, El Cajon CA 92019. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday/Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
Survivors can register with FEMA for federal aid 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 10:30 p.m. PDT. 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 is Dec. 16.
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.
