FEMA Uses Toll Free Lines For Disaster Relief

Disaster officials overseeing recovery operations in response to the severe storms and flooding in the North East in March have extended the deadline for  homeowners, renters and business owners to apply for disaster assistance until July 1. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) agreed to the extension after reviewing the stream of new registrations this spring. Those affected by the storms should register for assistance by calling FEMA’s toll-free number, 1-800-621-FEMA (3362) or TTY/TDD 1-800-462-7585 for the speech and hearing impaired (for relay service, call 711 or 1-800-852-7897) between 7 a.m. and 1a.m., seven days a week.
