NEW YORK – The Federal Emergency Management Agency announced today that a new Disaster Recovery Center is opening to assist survivors of Hurricane Sandy. Note that conditions at individual sites may vary and affect opening times. The new location is:

Garrison Little League Field
2671 Garrison Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11691
Hours:  8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Mon-Sun

More than 1,000 FEMA community relations personnel are blanketing damaged neighborhoods, going door-to-door delivering information vital to recovery and encouraging residents with damaged property to register for assistance. They can help refer survivors to the proper resources for any unmet disaster needs, but they do not assess or document damage. FEMA inspectors will contact survivors directly after they have registered.

Individuals do not have to go to a DRC to register with FEMA. Here are some alternatives:

They may apply for FEMA assistance 24 hours a day, seven days a week, by calling the toll-free registration number at 1-800-621-FEMA (3362).  If you have a speech disability or hearing loss and use a TTY, call 1-800-462-7585 directly; if you use 711 or Video Relay Service (VRS), call 1-800-621-3362.  They may also register online at: www.DisasterAssistance.gov or by mobile phone at m.fema.gov.  

To find the DRC nearest you, the following options are available: Text DRC and a Zip Code to 43362 (4FEMA), and a text message will be sent back with the address. Also, check out the disaster recovery center locator at www.FEMA.gov/disaster-recovery-centers.
