FEMA inspectors will begin making appointments with residents that applied for assistance after they submit their necessary insurance documentation to FEMA. 

In all presidentially declared counties for Individual Assistance, when an applicant registers with FEMA and becomes eligible for a Damaged Housing Inspection, the inspection is sent to a FEMA contractor inspector. The inspector contacts the applicant to set up an appointment for a time and date and also goes over what documentation needs to be provided for proof of residency.

Please be vigilant and check ID badge before letting anyone into your home. Watch for fraud, if you suspect criminal activity contact law enforcement.

Debris pick up will only be for a limited time, so please have your debris set out by whatever date provided.

What to do with debris when cleaning up your flooded home:

  • Residents should separate debris into 6 different piles in the right-of-way:

  1. normal household trash

  2. vegetative debris

  3. construction/demolition debris

  4. white goods (refrigerators, ranges, water heaters, freezers, unit air conditioners, washing machines, clothes dryers, and other similar domestic and commercial large appliances)

  5. e-waste (electronics)

  6. household hazardous waste

  • Residents should not place debris directly under power lines.

  • Residents should make sure debris piles are easily accessible and are not next to or leaning against trees, meters, mailboxes, water hydrants or anything else that could be damaged during the collection process.

  • Residents should not allow debris to block drainage ditch.

 Things to remember when cleaning up debris:

  • Wear proper personal protective equipment (gloves, goggles, boots) 

  • When cleaning flooded areas wash hands often with soap and water or hand sanitizer

  • Throw away items that cannot be easily disinfected

  • Discard any food that has been exposed to flood water

  • Seek immediate attention if you become ill or injured
