[ARCHIVED] FEMA Disaster Recovery Center at County Center Closes 9/26

Residents can still apply for help from Hurricane Irene online and by phone

The Disaster Recovery Center operated by FEMA at the Westchester County Center in the aftermath of Hurricane Irene will close next week, as demand for its services has declined since the storm hit last month. After that, residents and business may continue to apply for Hurricane aid online or by phone.

The final days of operation are as follows:
• Friday, September 23rd: 8am – 8pm
• Saturday, September 24th: 8am – 8pm
• Sunday, September 25th: CLOSED (this is per FEMA for all DRCs in the state)
• Monday, September 26th: 8am – 8pm (FINAL DAY)

To date, 1,500 people or businesses from Westchester have registered with FEMA, of which 250 visited the DRCs.

With Westchester being declared a disaster area by President Obama, residents and businesses are eligible to apply for disaster aid, along with local governments and nonprofit agencies. The first step is to register: by calling FEMA’s registration number 1-800-621-3362; or online at For those with speech or hearing disabilities, use the TTY number at 800-462-7585. FEMA strongly advises people to register in advance of visiting the disaster center.
