FEMA reps to operate from Jackson armory

Tuesday, May 20, 2003

Representatives from the Federal Emergency Management Agency will be stationed in Jackson the next two weeks to help those who have not yet applied for financial assistance in the wake of the May 6 tornado.

The representatives can be reached at the National Guard armory in Jackson on 224 W. Park St., or by phone at 1 (800) 621-FEMA.

Also this week, FEMA will meet with county officials to give tips on the application process.

The county will be reimbursed for overtime and equipment costs.

"We wanted to be proactive and do things right from the beginning in getting reimbursement through FEMA," said county auditor David Ludwig.

"We don't want to have to play catch-up."
