FEMA to set up mobile unit Feb. 10

Beginning Sunday, Feb. 10, at 7 a.m., FEMA will set up a mobile unit to offer assistance to all persons who have been affected by the tornado. All Union students are encouraged to register with FEMA in order to be considered for possible reimbursement for any uninsured losses.

The mobile unit will be located at 375 Vann Drive. For further information visit or call (800) 621-3362, or TTY users can dial (800) 462-7585 to use the Federal Relay Service. You are encouraged to call first to verify eligibility before traveling to the mobile unit.

FEMA has asked that students register at even if they do not know the extent of their losses at this point. Students must include their Union post office box in their address or their claim will automatically be rejected.

The mobile unit will be open from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. seven days a week.
