  • FEMA is now offering disaster assistance for citizens in the affected areas. You can reach
    FEMA by calling 800-621-3362, online at or in person at one of the
    Disaster Recovery Centers operating in the region. A FEMA team is stationed at the Albany
    Civic Center, meeting directly with residents effected by Hurricane Michael. They are open
    during business hours from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily.

  • All volunteers must register with the Community Organizations Active in Disaster (COAD) at
    925 Pine Ave and receive a bright pink tag/placard for their windshields that designates them
    as legitimate volunteers.

  • All contractors must register with the Business License office at 240 Pine Ave. and receive a
    bright yellow tag/placard for their windshields. If volunteers/contractors are unable to produce this documentation, residents need to call the EOC or law enforcement. The safety of our residents is of utmost importance.
