FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. — Mobile disaster centers will open in the coming weeks in Norwalk and Fairfield for homeowners and businesses seeking help after Hurricane Sandy.
“While we are encouraging residents to register with FEMA either online or via telephone, these mobile centers are another resource for individuals looking to access assistance,” Gov. Dannel Malloy said. “If ... you suffered damage from Storm Sandy, register with FEMA and visit one of these centers so we can begin the disaster assistance process.”
Federal Emergency Management Agency representatives will be at the Fairfield Senior Center, at 100 Mona Terrace , on Monday from noon to 8 p.m., and on Tuesday and Wednesday, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Next, FEMA will be at Norwalk City Hall, 1 25 East Ave. , on Thursday, from noon to 8 p.m., and on Friday and Nov. 17, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Connecticut residents have received $2.2 million in disaster aid — including short-term rental assistance and home repair costs — since Hurricane Sandy hit Oct. 29.
Residents seeking assistance are encouraged to register with FEMA before visiting the recovery center by either calling 1-800-621-FEMA (3362) or by going online at www.DisasterAssistance.gov . For those with speech or hearing disabilities, the TTY number is 1-800-462-7585.
