Douglas County: External Outreach Site to Open in Glide to Help Wildfire Survivors

SALEM, OR – A FEMA External Outreach Site opens Oct. 22 in Glide to assist Oregon residents in Douglas County
affected by recent wildfires and straight-line winds.

The site offers in-person visits for residents to get information about their application, ask questions about letters
they receive from FEMA, and have their documents scanned to be part of their application.

Representatives from FEMA’s Individual Assistance program will be available at the site.

Hours for all FEMA External Outreach Sites are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday-Saturday. Outreach sites are also open in
Medford, Eugene, Stayton, Lincoln and Estacada.

To reduce the risk of COVID-19 spread through person-to-person contact, wearing a mask or face covering is required to gain entry and visitors receive “no touch” temperature screenings. Hand sanitizer is available to survivors and staff.

Federal staff wear masks, face shields and gloves. Workstations are spaced six feet apart to provide an extra level of protection for survivors and staff.
FEMA ensures that common areas are cleaned regularly during the day and workstations are sanitized after each visitor.

Survivors can visit any of the External Outreach Sites for in-person help; however, they do not need to visit an External Outreach Site to apply or update their application. They can apply for assistance or update an application in the following ways:

▪ Call FEMA toll-free at 800-621-3362 (TTY: 800-462-7585). The toll-free telephone lines operate from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. PDT, seven days a week.
▪ Visit DisasterAssistance.gov.
▪ Check FEMA’s mobile app.
▪ Those who use a Relay service such as a videophone, InnoCaption or CapTel should update FEMA with their assigned number for that service. They should be aware phone calls from FEMA may come from an unidentified number.

All Oregonians – including those affected by the recent wildfires and straight-line winds – who have questions about repairing or rebuilding disaster damaged homes or want to learn more about building stronger and safer, to include creating defensive fire spaces, can contact FEMA Mitigation Specialists via email at [email protected]. This is a free service.
