BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) - FEMA set up a recovery center in Bainbridge Wednesday...open to Decatur AND Miller county flood victims.
FEMA Representatives sat down with residents in the Chamber 2 building at the Fairgrounds off Vada Road in Decatur County to get them qualified for federal aid.
Other services were there too to help get disaster victims back on their feet.
"Small business administration, legal services, food stamps, mitigation, of course our state is always here. We basically get them to where they need to be after a disaster," says Katherine Burt, FEMA Manager for this disaster.
Representatives say even if you think you don't qualify for assistance, stop by anyway, you may be surprised.
And if you have insurance, be sure to bring that information with you.
The center will be open Monday through Saturday from eight to seven.
They encourage you to speed up the process by calling 1-800-621-FEMA ahead of time to get a FEMA ID number. If you don't, you'll have to do it when you get there.
