NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The temporary state/federal Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) in Stewart County will close on Wednesday, May 25, but disaster assistance will be only a phone call away.
The center is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. CDT through Wednesday at the following address:
102 Natcore Drive
Dover, Tenn. 37058
Disaster recovery centers provide survivors a one-stop location to get information to help them through the recovery process. When traffic to a center slows, it is an indication that the need for information has been met. The Stewart County DRC has had fewer than two dozen visitors since it opened May 18.
The first step for individuals and businesses toward obtaining recovery assistance is to register with FEMA:
- By phone, call 800-621-FEMA (3362) from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. local time. Assistance is available in many languages. Those who are deaf, hard of hearing or who have a speech disability may use TTY 800 - 462-7585.
- By computer, go online to www.DisasterAssistance.gov.
- By smartphone or tablet, use m.fema.gov.
