Denver, CO -- Residents who sustained losses or damage as a result of the recent wildfires have only three more days to visit the FEMA/State Disaster Recovery Center in Glenwood Springs, federal and state disaster recovery officials reminded residents today.

"The Disaster Recovery Center will be operating 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. through Saturday, July 6," said Tommy Grier, state coordinating officer.

"But even after the center closes FEMA will be as close as a telephone call away," said Steve Emory, federal coordinating officer.

Disaster victims may still register for assistance by calling toll-free 1-800-621-FEMA (3362). Hearing or speech impaired individuals can call 1-800-462-7585 (TTY).

"People can call to register, to find out about assistance programs or to ask about the status of their applications," said Emory.

Other Recovery Centers are located in Durango, Woodland Park and Ca?n City. Additional centers will be opening in the coming weeks.

Disaster assistance programs include housing assistance, grants for serious needs and necessary expenses not covered by insurance or other programs, and low-interest loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration. Disaster unemployment assistance, tax assistance and other special services are also available to eligible persons affected by the disaster.
