FEMA Specialists reaching out to Alabama survivors

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Survivors in hard-hit Alabama communities, seeking disaster assistance, can get help registering from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. FEMA will be vi sting businesses, local organizations and churches in Baldwin, Blount, Jefferson, Lee, Limestone and Tuscaloosa counties.

Crews of FEMA disaster survivor assistance specialists and FEMA Corps members will be canvassing affected areas to provide on-site registration assistance, address immediate and emerging needs. They will also be available to answer any specific questions about the registration process.

Using tablets, crew members can help a survivor fill out an application for assistance on the spot – collecting information in person. Crew members can be identified easily by their photo badges and either FEMA or FEMA Corps clothing. Alabama residents are reminded to ask for federal identification before providing personal information.

If called, applicants could be asked to verify their identity with some of the following information:

  • The last four digits of their Social Security number.
  • The address of their damaged home.
  • The applicant's current mailing address.
  • The applicant's current phone number

Those who suspect anyone of committing fraudulent activities should call the FEMA Disaster Fraud Hotline toll-free at 866-720-5721. Complaints may also be made to local law enforcement agencies and through the state's Office of Consumer Affairs at 800-392-5658.

Survivors in the counties currently designated for Individual Assistance can register online at DisasterAssistance.gov or via smartphone at m.fema.gov. Applicants may also call 800-621-3362 or (TTY) 800-462-7585. The toll-free telephone numbers operate from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. local time, seven days a week. Multilingual operators are available
