Housing inspectors and Disaster Survivor Assistance Teams from the Federal Emergency Management Agency have hit the streets in Muskogee, Tulsa, and Wagoner counties to help disaster survivors get connected with potential assistance.

Once survivors register with FEMA inspections can begin.

Homeowners and renters should make sure their contact information is up to date and have access to a telephone.

They will also need a photo ID and proof of ownership or a lease.

Disaster Survivor Assistance Teams will go door to door in affected areas to help answer questions about the type of help available, help apply for state and federal assistance, update contact info, and helf with referrals to whole community partners.

You can recognize FEMA team members by blue shirts with the FEMA logo.

Individuals with damage should contact their insurance agent before registering for FEMA assistance online at www.disasterassistance.gov.

You can also call 800-621-3362 or (TTY) 800-462-7585 from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
