The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will open a Mobile Response Intake Center on Friday, Nov. 6 at Maria Carrillo High School, 6975 Montecito Blvd, Santa Rosa to provide one-on-one support to Glass Fire survivors registering for federal disaster assistance.
The intake center will be open daily (Mondays through Saturdays) from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. through Dec. 16, which is also the final day to register for disaster assistance.
Individuals affected by the Glass Fire may be eligible for federal aid and are encouraged to register with FEMA to determine their eligibility for financial assistance that may include rent, home repair, home replacement and other serious disaster-related needs such as child care, transportation, medical or other expenses.
At the intake center, fire survivors will be able to register for federal disaster assistance, check the status of their applications, find information about programs and agencies that can help speed their recovery, receive answers to questions, and determine whether they can still receive assistance if they have insurance.
In addition to visiting the intake center, fire survivors are invited to register with FEMA for federal aid in one of the following ways:
- Online at: disasterassistance.gov
- Downloading the FEMA app to a smartphone or tablet
- Calling the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362 (TTY 800-462-7585) between 7 a.m. and 10:30 p.m
The helpline staff can also answer questions about applications already submitted.
