Disaster Center at Harbor Island October 6, 7 & 8
FEMA and the NYS Office of Emergency Management (SOEM) have been coordinating with the Westchester County Office of Emergency Management and the Village of Mamaroneck to schedule an assignment of a Mobile Disaster Recovery Center (MDRC) to open for 3 days at Harbor Island Park.
The dates and times will be Thursday October 6th, Friday October 7th and Saturday October 8th, with hours from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., weather permitting.
With Westchester being declared a disaster area by President Obama, residents and businesses are eligible to apply for disaster aid, along with local governments and nonprofit agencies. Residents and business may apply in person, online or by phone.
Applications will be accepted until the end of this month.

For those with speech or hearing disabilities, use the TTY number at 800-462-7585. FEMA strongly advises people to register by phone or on-line in advance of visiting the disaster center.
