FEMA application help event planned for Jackson County
Southern Oregonians displaced in the Almeda and South Obenchain fires who've applied for disaster assistance through the Federal Emergency Management Agency — but still have questions about their applications — will be able to speak with FEMA representatives in person at an event scheduled for later this month.
Walk-in appointments to speak with FEMA representatives will be scheduled on a first come, first served basis July 30 through Aug. 2 at the Phoenix Civic Center, 200 N. Main St., Phoenix, according to a release issued Wednesday by the Oregon Office of Emergency Management.
Spanish language and sign language interpreters will be available upon request.
Those unable to attend the event who need help with their application or the appeals process can reach a FEMA specialist by calling the government agency’s helpline at 1-800-621-3362 between 4 a.m. and 8 p.m. seven days a week, or by visiting DisasterAssistance.gov.
