FEMA Info from Town Hall

Woodbridge Home & Business Owners who Suffered Damage to Apply for Federal Disaster
Aid & Assistance at: 1-800-621-FEMA (3362)
WOODBRIDGE – Mayor John E. McCormac today advised Woodbridge Township homeowners, renters, and businesses whose properties were damaged as a result of Hurricane Sandy on Oct. 29-30, 2012 to contact the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) – State of New Jersey Disaster Assistance Hotline.
Woodbridge Township residents should apply for federal disaster assistance through the FEMA on-line registration.  The FEMA website consolidates the application process across several federal agencies, including FEMA and the Small Business Administration.  The website also reduces the number of forms required to be completed, shortens the time it takes to apply, and allows applicants to check application progress on-line.  The toll-free telephone numbers will operate from 7:00 A.M. to 10:00 P.M. EDT seven days a week until further notice.  Apply on-line at:
Web-Enabled Mobile Device at:
By Calling: 1-800-621-FEMA (3362)
1-800-462-7585 (TTY) for hearing & speech impaired
Applicants will be asked to provide Social Security number, type of insurance coverage, family gross total income at the time of disaster, address and phone number where damage occurred, and current address and phone number if different than the location damaged.
Woodbridge Township is included in the federal disaster declaration which opens the door for Township residents whose homes, businesses, and property were damaged as a result of Hurricane Sandy to apply for federal disaster assistance,” Mayor McCormac said.  “The Woodbridge Office of Emergency Management and the Township Department of Public Works have been assisting Township homeowners and businesses impacted by the flooding and will continue to do so.  Additionally, I would like to acknowledge the around-the-clock efforts of each and every Woodbridge Township fire department, first aid squad, and emergency responder for answering the call during the height of the storm.  Through their actions, Woodbridge residents were safely evacuated, Township roads remained passable, and flooded basements are being pumped.”
