If you have experienced damages to your home, business or property and they are not covered by any existing insurance you may have, you should apply to FEMA for Individual Assistance. You can apply online at www.DisasterAssistance.gov or by phone at 1-800-621-3362. It is important that residents write down their confirmation code (unique identifier) supplied by FEMA. Residents should never give that code out. When approached by a contractor, residents should request to see the contractors FEMA issued identification card.
