FEMA/State Disaster Recovery Center in Pitt County to close

The Disaster Recovery Center in Pitt County will close Tuesday, Nov. 22, at 6 p.m.
The center is located at:
Pitt County Agricultural Center
403 Government Circle
Greenville, NC 27834

At this time, visits to the center have decreased. Therefore, FEMA and the state will close the center and relocate resources to other centers in the affected counties.
Survivors can still get help by calling the FEMA Helpline or visiting one of the other recovery centers.
To locate the center nearest you, call the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362, use the ReadyNC and FEMA mobile apps or go online to FEMA.gov/DRC or readync.org.
Registering with FEMA is the first step to federal disaster assistance. Register:
• Online at DisasterAssistance.gov.
• Call the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362 for voice, 711 and Video Relay Service. If you are deaf, hard of hearing or have a speech disability and use a TTY, call 800-462-7585.
• Download the FEMA Mobile App and apply.

Survivors requiring a reasonable accommodation (American Sign Language interpreting, Braille, large print, etc.) while visiting a disaster recovery center may call the appropriate Helpline number listed above for support. These toll-free numbers are open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week. Help is available in many languages, and information on the registration process is available in ASL at http://www.fema.gov/media-library/assets/videos/111546.
FEMA assistance is non-taxable and will not affect eligibility for Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare or other federal benefits.
Register even if you have insurance. FEMA cannot duplicate insurance payments, but if you are underinsured you may receive help after your claim has been settled.
