SACRAMENTO, Calif. – A FEMA Mobile Registration Intake Center serving wildfire survivors in Napa County has ended Saturday operations.

It will remain open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays at the First Presbyterian Church, 1428 Spring St., St. Helena CA 94574.

The center assists survivors with disaster information as part of the ongoing response and recovery mission for FEMA and the state of California. It offers an opportunity for survivors to register for federal aid, especially those without access to internet or telephone service.

Survivors can also register with FEMA:

  • 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. PST. 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.

Financial awards for eligible survivors may include rent, home repair, home replacement and other disaster-related needs such as childcare, personal property replacement and medical or dental expenses.

Survivors are reminded to keep FEMA informed if they change their mailing addresses or phone numbers so that their aid will not be delayed. To update personal information, survivors may call the FEMA Helpline or use their personal FEMA accounts they set up when registering for assistance with the FEMA app or at DisasterAssistance.gov.

Napa County was included in two recent federal wildfire disaster declarations: Disaster 4558 and Disaster 4569. The first includes the LNU Lightning Complex fires that started in August. Deadline to apply with FEMA for aid is Saturday, Nov. 21. The second, declared in October, includes the Glass Fire that started Sept. 27. Deadline is Dec. 16 to register with FEMA for aid for Disaster 4569.
