Following a declared disaster, it's important that you call FEMA to report damages as soon as possible in order to receive assistance from FEMA. Please call or go to www.DisasterAssistance.gov to register. Here are some important, useful tips:
Take pictures of all damages.
Keep receipts for all disaster-related and disaster repair spending.
FEMA will provide you with a list of documents they may need when registering you for assistance. Make sure you have these documents together and organized before you meet with a
FEMA disaster case manager.
It's very helpful if you keep all disaster-related paperwork and documentation in one location.
We recommend you using your Hardin County Strong storm bag or a divided, tabbed folder
to keep documents sorted and organized.
