FEMA to open mobile center to help residents and businesses with hurricane recovery

RELEASE DATE: November 9, 2017

CLERMONT —The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is opening a mobile Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) for residents and business owners affected by recent hurricanes. The DRC will be open from Nov. 14 – 17 at the Highlander Building, 330 3rd St., Clermont. The DRC will be open from 1-7 p.m. on Nov. 14 and from 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. Nov. 15-17.  

Some of the services available include federal disaster assistance and low-interest loans for homeowners and businesses through the U.S. Small Business Administration.

“This is the second mobile DRC FEMA has opened in Lake County, and it is the perfect opportunity for residents and business owners to check the status of the claims they may have previously filed after Hurricane Irma,” said Tommy Carpenter, director of Lake County Emergency Management. “Additionally, county staff will be on hand to provide resources for local residents, as well as those displaced by Hurricane Maria who are settling in Lake County.”

For more information, call Lake County’s Office of Emergency Management at 352-343-9420 or call the United Way’s 2-1-1, a free and confidential service that helps people find the local resources they need 24 hours a day, seven days a week.1
