FEMA Still Here to Assist Alabama’s Recovery

Clanton, Ala. – The deadline for registering with FEMA has passed, but that does not mean FEMA is leaving. FEMA continues working with the Alabama Emergency Management Agency (AEMA) to help Alabama survivors and communities recover from the impacts caused by the severe storms and tornadoes on March 25-26.

If you have registered for assistance, FEMA encourages you to keep in touch to track your case or to notify the agency of changes to your mailing address, email addresses or phone numbers, and to report insurance settlements or additional damage you may have discovered since your home inspection.

Here’s how to reach FEMA:

Operators are multilingual and those who use a relay service such as a videophone, InnoCaption or CapTel should update FEMA with their specific number assigned to that service. If you need accommodations for language or a disability, let the operator know.

For additional online resources, as well as FEMA downloadable pamphlets and other aids, visit www.disasterassistance.gov and click “information.”

For referrals to Alabama’s health and human service agencies as well as community organizations, dial 211, text 888-421-1266, or chat with referral specialists via www.211connectsalabama.org.
