Mesa, AZ -- The Arizona Division of Emergency Management, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), in conjunction with the White Mountain Apache Indian Tribe announce a schedule change for the mobile unit now stationed in White River.
Monday, July 8, 2002, the mobile center will begin serving those on the Fort Apache Indian Reservation at Cibecue. Representatives from FEMA, SBA and the Arizona Department of Economic Security will staff the center.
Both state and federal officials encourage people to take advantage of this assistance. "We want everyone to get the help they need in this trying time," Director of the Arizona Division of Emergency Management Michael P. Austin said. "The mobile unit is especially convenient for those who cannot travel to the other Help Center locations."
The unit will leave the White River location in the Veteran's Building, 201 E. Walnut and travel to Cibecue, where it will set up the Help Center in the Cibecue Administration Complex, 2 W. 3 rd Street. The Cibecue Help Center will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, July 8, through Wednesday, July 10.
The mobile team will then rotate back to White River (in the Veteran's Bldg, 201 E. Walnut) and serve area residents from Thursday, July 11, through Saturday, July 13.
Individuals can check the status of their application, receive information on programs, register for assistance and speak to program representatives. People affected by the disaster may also be referred to other agencies for help.
