Denver, CO -- Residents who sustained losses or damage as a result of the recent wildfires have only two more days to visit the FEMA/State Disaster Recovery Centers in Cañon City and Castle Rock, federal and state disaster recovery officials reminded residents today.

The Cañon City center is located at Garden Park High School, 210 6th St. at Macon. The Castle Rock center is located in the Hayman Recovery Assistance Center (HRAC) at the Plum Creek Center, 714C S. Perry St. The U.S. Forest Service will continue to staff the HRAC until further notice.

"These two Disaster Recovery Centers will be operating 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. through Saturday, July 13," said State Coordinating Officer Tommy Grier.

"But even after these centers close, the Woodland Park location remains the primary Disaster Recovery Center for those affected by the Hayman fire. And of course, FEMA is still only 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). Individuals with hearing or speech impairments can call TTY 1-800-462-7585.

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

Other Disaster Recovery Centers are located in Durango and Woodland Park. These locations will continue to operate from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday.

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.
