The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will be opening a Disaster Recovery Center in Rockland County Sunday to assist victims of Hurricane Sandy.  

The Disaster Recovery Center will be located at Provident Bank Park in Pomana and will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. seven days a week until further notice. 

"This is a great opportunity for Rockland residents to find out about disaster assistance from knowledgeable FEMA personnel," said County Executive C. Scott Vanderhoef. "Residents and business owners should not hesitate to request help with registering for disaster assistance, filing insurance claims, or checking the status of an existing claim. Hurricane Sandy devastated parts of our County, and we want to ensure that the victims of the storm are able to apply to get the help they are entitled to from the Federal Government."

Residents who apply for Federal assistance will be asked for the following information:

  • The address of damaged home or apartment
  • Names of people living in your household
  • A description of your disaster damages
  • Insurance information
  • Your Social Security Number
  • A telephone number where they can reach you or leave a message
  • An address where you can receive mail

If you want your disaster assistant funds sent directly to your bank, you will need to provide:

  • bank account type
  • account number
  • routing number

Residents are encouraged to visit the Disaster Recovery Center to file an application, check the status of their application and discuss low interest loans for homeowners, renters, and businesses with the U.S. Small Business Administration.

Residents can also register by calling FEMA at (1-800-621-FEMA) or visiting www.disasterassistance.gov.
