SACRAMENTO, Calif. – A FEMA Mobile Registration Intake Center serving SCU Lighting Complex wildfire survivors will operate Oct. 8-12 outside of Livermore.
The center is part of the ongoing response and recovery mission for FEMA and the State of California to support survivors affected by the SCU Lightning Complex wildfires, which burned nearly 400,000 acres in August and September before their containment Oct. 1.
The center is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Santa Clara Sweetwater CalFire Station, 47625 Mines Rd., Livermore CA 94550 and will operate alongside the community’s Local Assistance Center, where state agency materials are available.
Survivors can register with FEMA for federal aid in one of three ways:
- online at www.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. If you use a relay service such as a videophone, Innocaption or CapTel, provide FEMA the specific number assigned to that service when you register.
- The helpline staff can also answer questions about applications already submitted.
On Sept. 28, Santa Clara County was added to an earlier FEMA disaster declaration, allowing residents with damage from the wildfires to apply for financial assistance that may include rent, home repair, home replacement and other disaster-related needs such as childcare, medical and dental expenses.
