FEMA to Open Sandy Recover Center in Stratford

FEMA opens the center Monday at the Birdseye Municipal Complex. It will operate for three days.

A week after FEMA agents started knocking on residents' doors in Stratford, the Federal Emergency Management Agency will open a disaster and recovery command center in town.

The center will open at the Birdseye Municipal Complex, 468 Birdseye St., on Monday, Nov. 19, at noon.

It will operate from noon to 8 p.m. Monday; 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday; and 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, according to Marc Dillon, the mayor's chief of staff.

"Stratford residents and businesses who suffered damage as a result of Storm Sandy are encouraged to register with FEMA before visiting the recovery center by either calling 1.800.621.FEMA (3362) or by going online at www.DisasterAssistance.gov," Dillon wrote in an email. "For those with speech or hearing disabilities, the TTY number is 1.800.462.7585."
