Mobile Registration Intake Center Open in Lassen County

SACRAMENTO ÔÇô A FEMA Mobile Registration Intake Center opens in Susanville Tuesday, ┬áNov. 17, for four days to serve Lassen County wildfire survivors.

The intake center is part of the ongoing response and recovery mission for FEMA and the state of California to assist survivors with disaster information.

It is located at Jensen Hall, Lassen County Fairgrounds, 195 Russell Ave., Susanville CA 96130. It will be open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 17 through Friday, Nov. 20.

The centers are temporary sites to support survivors with disaster information. They offer an optional opportunity for survivors to register, especially those without access to internet or telephone service.

Survivors also may register with FEMA in one of three ways:
