People can register for FEMA disaster aid or get help with a letter denying a claim.

The main FEMA office at Central High School, 815 S. Oakdale Ave., Medford from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

As we transition to the medium and long-term housing phase of the recovery effort, the Central High location will remain available for those that need to register and review the status of their FEMA claims.

FEMA officials are urging everyone who lost residential or commercial property during the September fires to register. Register even if you have insurance. FEMA won’t duplicate benefits, but it can help make up for insurance shortfalls.

To register with FEMA, visit disasterassistance.gov or call 1-800-621-3362. Members of the FEMA team are working to find every affected resident.

At the FEMA location, people who have registered can check the status of their claim, or if they’ve received a letter denying their claim, FEMA specialists can review those claims for reconsideration.

Some people had a claim denied because they didn’t submit copies of needed documents. FEMA can offer advice on those documents, or how to replace documents lost in fires.
