FEMA representatives in Fayetteville offering mitigation information


FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KFTA) — Mitigation advisers with FEMA will be in Fayetteville for the next few days offering free mitigation consultations.

Advisers will be on hand to answer questions about rebuilding and protecting homes and businesses from future disaster-related damage.

Topics will include flood recovery and flood insurance with most of the information geared toward do-it-yourself work and general contractors.

Free publications will be available about mitigation topics such as:

  • Mold and mildew
  • Emergency supply kits
  • What to do after a flood
  • Above the flood
  • Protecting your home and property from flood damage

Advisers will be at the Home Depot on Joyce Blvd. in Fayetteville on the following dates and times:

  • Wednesday, August 21 from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
  • Thursday, August 22 through Saturday, August 24 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Sunday, August 25 from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Monday, August 26 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Andy Mathis, community education and outreach specialist with FEMA said, “FEMA can help out the first time, but then after that, if someone doesn’t have flood insurance, they need to get it or otherwise FEMA can’t help out again.”

FEMA will host events this Sunday and Monday, and next Monday at the Home Depot.
