ATLANTA, Ga. -- Stay in touch with FEMA. That is the message for people affected by the September Georgia floods, according to disaster officials.

If an applicant changes a name, mailing address, bank account or telephone number, it is important to let FEMA know so changes can be made in the applicant's case file.

Register for assistance with FEMA; then use FEMA's Helpline to stay in touch with recovery specialists.

When calling the Helpline, applicants should have their registration number available so FEMA will have correct information.

The toll-free registration number serves as a good way to stay in touch - even after a Disaster Recovery Center closes.

Disaster applicants can receive or give information about the status of their recovery by choosing the Helpline option at 800-621-FEMA (3362).  People who are hard of hearing, deaf or have speech disabilities may call the TTY number 800-462-7585. The toll-free numbers are staffed from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week, until further notice. Help is available in all languages.

Recovery specialists will answer disaster-related questions and update any changing registration information.

So stay in touch.

FEMA's mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards.
