GEORGIA (WTOC) -

FEMA has opened two disaster recovery centers in our area.

One is in Liberty County, while another is set to open on Tybee Island.

The Liberty County disaster recovery center will be open Oct. 29-31 at Mt. Zion Church at 1370 Shaw Road in Hinesville. The hours are Saturday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Sunday 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.; Monday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The center on Tybee Island is open Oct. 29-31 at 5122 Jones Avenue. The hours are Saturday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Sunday 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.; Monday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Staffed by representatives from FEMA, the State of Georgia, the SBA and other agencies, the recovery centers provides one-on-one assistance regarding disaster assistance:

  • Help completing paperwork and checking the status of your application.
  • Discuss the U.S. Small Business Administration’s low-interest disaster loans for homeowners, renters and businesses.
  • Meet with Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency and other federal, state and voluntary organizations for information about additional disaster assistance.
  • Understand how to appeal FEMA eligibility decisions.
  • The centers are equipped with accessibility kits that offer accommodations to meet the needs of the entire community, including people with disabilities.

"We encourage people to come. They can see and talk to a person face to face; have questions answered, they'll be representatives here from the Small Business Administration; they can ask questions too, as well, so we just encourage people to come and take advantage of some benefits that they may be eligible for under the FEMA program," said Gary Petty, FEMA.
