CRANFORD—The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) opened a Disaster Recovery Center today at Cranford Borough Hall, 8 Springfield Avenue, to assist individuals, households and businesses affected by the storms and flooding of mid-March.
The center is staffed with FEMA, U.S. Small Business Administration and state agency disaster recovery specialists who are ready to help survivors through the recovery process.
“FEMA is opening these DRCs as quickly as possible to bring needed assistance directly to the affected communities,” said Federal Coordinating Officer William L. Vogel. “We urge everyone affected by the storms and flooding to visit a DRC to get information and file for the assistance for which they may be eligible.”
Residents affected by the flooding are encouraged to register with FEMA before visiting a center.
