JACKSON, Miss. -- The 18 Disaster Recovery Centers (DRCs) in Mississippi will maintain normal hours of operation over the New Year's weekend, federal and state officials announced today.

"This Saturday or Monday may be the only time some applicants have to visit a DRC so we want to be available for them. We want to be sure they have every opportunity to get the information they need," said Nick Russo, federal coordinating officer for the Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

Disaster victims are urged to register for assistance before visiting a DRC by calling 1-800-621-FEMA (3362) or (TTY) 1-800-462-7585 for speech- or hearing- impaired. Individuals may also register online at www.fema.gov. Those who have questions or who wish to follow up on their registrations may visit a DRC to meet with recovery specialists in person.

DRCs are staffed by representatives of state, federal and voluntary agencies to answer questions and provide recovery information. Representatives from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) will be available to discuss disaster loans for homeowners, renters, and businesses of all sizes. Written materials about various assistance programs are also available to individuals and business owners.

All DRCs are open from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday and closed on Sunday until further notice.
