Ferndale, MI — FEMA has opened the Oakland County Disaster Recovery Center at the City of Ferndale’s Gerry Kulick Community Center to assist residents who suffered damages and losses in the August 11-13 severe storms and flooding.
FEMA’s disaster recovery centers offer long-term opportunities for disaster survivors to reach out to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), U.S. Small Business Administration and other organizations. (A link to the SBA loan website has been embedded in the homepage of our website).
This center is a one-stop shop where disaster survivors can register for assistance, discuss types of disaster assistance programs with specialists, receive the status of their existing application and obtain other information.
The center is open from 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday, but closed on Sunday. Residents with losses from the storms and flooding will save time by registering for help from FEMA before going to the disaster recovery centers. Residents can register with FEMA the following ways:
