FEMA TEAMS WORKING IN MICHIGAN NEIGHBORHOOD Release Date: February 16, 2024 Disaster Survivor Assistance (DSA) crews from FEMA are going door-to-door in central and southeast Michigan helping residents affected by the August 24 -26 tornadoes, severe storms and flooding navigate the federal assistance process. Crews will be starting in hard-hit areas of Eaton, Ingham, Ionia, Kent, Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland and Wayne counties, with plans to move to other impacted communities in the weeks ahead.  These crews will be visiting homes, businesses, and nonprofit organizations in affected areas to help residents register for assistance, identify, and address immediate and emerging needs, and make referrals to other local, state, and voluntary agencies for additional support.   DSA crew members will never ask for or accept money and will always be wearing a FEMA identification badge with a photograph. A FEMA shirt, vest or jacket is NOT proof of identity. While helping someone register, they will ask for personal information, including social security number, annual income and bank information. Residents are encouraged to ask for identification before providing any personal information. They can also call the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362 to verify a FEMA visit is legitimate. Michigan residents in declared counties don’t have to wait for a DSA crew to apply for assistance. To apply, download the FEMA Mobile App [], visit [] or call 800-621-3362. If you use video relay service (VRS), captioned telephone service or others, give FEMA your number for that service when you apply.
