FEMA Mobile Registration Intake Center Closing Oct. 10 in Sonoma County

SACRAMENTO A FEMA Mobile Registration Intake Center serving wildfire survivors in Sonoma County for nearly three weeks will close Saturday, Oct. 10.

The center is located at the Sonoma County Office of Education, 5340 Skylane Blvd., Santa Rosa, CA 95403.

Visitors can register for FEMA assistance; check the status of their FEMA applications; find information about programs and agencies that can help speed their recovery; receive answers to questions; review information within their letter from FEMA; and find out whether they can still receive assistance if they have insurance.

The Mobile Registration Intake Center is part of  FEMA’s ongoing response and recovery mission to the August fire siege across California.

Survivors can register with FEMA in one of three ways: online at www.disasterassistance.gov; by downloading the FEMA app to a smartphone or tablet; or by calling the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362 (TTY 800-462-7585) between 7 a.m. and 10:30 p.m. Pacific. The helpline staff can also answer questions about applications already submitted.
