Recovery Tips

Posted:

  1. Contact insurance company (if applicable) immediately.
  2. Affected households should report damage to their respective Office of Emergency Management (see table below)
  3. Affected households should also call and report damage to United Way 211 by dialing 2-1-1.
  4. If available, affected households are encouraged to attend a Multi-Agency Resource Center (MARC) in their area to connect with disaster service providers. (see table below)
  5. Take copious photos of the damage prior to tearing out any household materials.
  6. Take photos after tear-out. (see link for “Quick Tips for Cleaning Up After a Flood” below)
  7. Do not repair damage until insurance assessor and/or a representative from the Emergency Management Agency has been able to assess the damage.
  8. KEEP ALL RECEIPTS for any supplies purchased.

We won’t know whether or not a declaration has been awarded for a few weeks so it’s safest to assume that we will not receive a declaration. However, affected households should still follow the “sequence of delivery”. Here is the website to check on the status of the declaration: http://www.disasterassistance.gov/.
