MEMA, FEMA ENSURE DISASTER ASSISTANCE IS AVAILABLE TO PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES

CLINTON, MissMississippi Emergency Management Agency and the Federal Emergency Management Agency are working to make sure people with disabilities have equal access to disaster assistance programs.

“Disasters negatively affect everyone in the community, but individuals with disabilities may encounter unexpected barriers along the road to receiving recovery assistance” said MEMA Director Mike Womack. “Our goal is to be certain everyone; including persons with disabilities, has accurate and accessible information about available state and federal recovery programs.”

The inclusive effort means materials are in plain language and in alternative formats such as large print and Braille. Sign language interpreters, amplified phones and other assistive technology are available by request. FEMA’s TTY line (800-462-7585) can also answer questions or register people who have hearing impairments.

Those looking for the nearest disaster recovery center can find one the following ways:
By using the 7-1-1 relay service to reach FEMA’s helpline at 800-621-3362 or by
TTY/ 800-462-7585. By going to the online disaster recovery center locator at http://www.fema.gov/drclocator. By smartphone or tablet at m.fema.gov.
“FEMA’s goal is to make the process of recovery available equally to everyone,” Said Terry L. Quarles, federal coordinating officer for FEMA.
