FEMA declaration – note from NR Fire Chief

Could you send this out to your neighbors:

   The Federal Government finally declared this county a disaster area and the federal programs will begin to become available.  To qualify and apply, residents should call the FEMA hot line at 1-800-621-3362 to get additional information and apply.  Applications can also be made on line a www.fema.gov .

   Once applications are received, FEMA representatives will come out to inspect the claims before processing any assistance.  I suggest that anyone wanting to apply should do so as soon as possible as there will be a large volume of claims coming from the region.

   Again, I urge everyone to document their losses with pictures to assist in speeding the process.

   Hope this is of some help.  Have a good weekend.

Dave Harlow, North Reading Fire Chief
