FEMA Disaster Survivor Assistance Teams headed to Kane County

Beginning Tuesday, FEMA Disaster Survivor Assistance Teams will be in Kane County to provide information and give residents affected by the April flooding an opportunity to register for federal disaster assistance.
 
These teams will be visiting homes, businesses, and high-traffic locations in the affected areas, providing support to disaster survivors directly in the communities where they live and work.
 
Team members may offer residents the opportunity to use a tablet computer to register for assistance. Residents will not be required to share personal information unless they wish a DSAT team member to enter the data for them. Residents are reminded to ask for federal identification before providing personal information.
 
"The DSAT teams will give residents the opportunity to ask a FEMA representative directly about the disaster assistance process and register for the program," said Don Bryant, director of the Kane County Office for Emergency Management.
 
If residents prefer to use their own personal computer or telephone to register for FEMA assistance, they can do so by calling 800-621-3362 (TTY 800-462-7585) or by going to www.DisasterAssistance.gov.
