The FEMA center at Bay Head Fire Station No. 1 in Bay Head has changed its hours to 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday to be consistent with centers across the state, according to FEMA.
Residents and business people from Point Pleasant Borough, Point Pleasant Beach, Bay Head, Mantoloking and other towns, who have been impacted by Sandy, are welcome to visit the center to get information and assistance.
"Centers allow residents to speak one-on-one with recovery representatives," says the FEMA website.
"FEMA program specialists are available to provide registration and other information and to answer questions at the centers. These include mitigation specialists who can provide guidance on cost-effective rebuilding and repair techniques to reduce property damage in future disasters.
In addition to FEMA program specialists, customer service representatives from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) are available to answer questions about the SBA low-interest disaster loan program, and to assist with disaster loan applications.
DRC locations may change. The nearest open offices can be found online at FEMA.gov/DRC.
It is not necessary to visit a center to receive disaster assistance.
FEMA's mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards."
