SPRINGFIELD – FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, has opened its first Disaster Recovery Center in Union County, to enable residents to apply for disaster assistance in person. The center is located at the Chisholm Community Center at 100 South Springfield Avenue in Springfield. It is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day of the week including Saturday and Sunday.

“Many residents have used FEMA’s website and toll-free number, but for those of you who need an extra hand, the Disaster Recovery Center enables you to talk to a FEMA representative in person,” said Freeholder Chairman Mirabella. “It is very reassuring to be able to speak with someone face to face, so if you have any questions at all about applying for disaster assistance, I urge you visit the Disaster Recovery Center.”

FEMA is expected to open additional centers at other locations in Union County within the next several days. Any of the centers, regardless of its location, can be used by any New Jersey resident.

For residents wishing to use FEMA’s online application process, visit disasterassitance.gov or call FEMA toll free, 1-800-621-3362 (TTY 1-800-462-7585).
