SACRAMENTO, Calif. – A FEMA Mobile Registration Intake Center opened today in Mendocino County and will be open through Thursday, Oct. 29, to serve wildfire survivors.

The center is part of the ongoing response and recovery mission for FEMA and the State of California to support survivors with uninsured losses.

It is located at Willits Library, 390 E. Commercial St., Willits, CA 95490. Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Survivors can register with FEMA for federal aid 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. PDT. Those who use a relay service such as a videophone, Innocaption or CapTel, should provide FEMA with the specific number assigned to that service when they register.
  • The helpline staff can also answer questions about applications already submitted.

Registration enables FEMA to determine residents’ eligibility for financial assistance that may include rent, home repair, home replacement and other serious disaster-related needs such as childcare, transportation and medical, funeral or dental expenses.
