FEMA to Open Nevada Recovery Service Center for Harvey Relief Efforts

Posted: Updated:

FEMA is looking to hire up to 300 local Nevadans to help support Hurricane Harvey relief efforts at a new service center in Carson City.  

The new Recovery Service Center will also offer support to survivors of other ongoing disaster operations. 

FEMA says this service center will not affect ongoing support to state, local and tribal applicants for the flooding that took place in Nevada in January and February earlier this year. 

FEMA says additional FEMA and other Department of Homeland Security staff started arriving over the weekend to set up the center.

The center will receive and process applications for disaster assistance through its toll-free registration number and through online registration.

Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval released this statement: 

“Nevada is proud to serve as a base of operations for FEMA as the victims of Hurricane Harvey begin to seek the resources necessary to rebuild their homes and communities. I am pleased that Nevadans will be helping their fellow Americans and we’ll work with FEMA to ensure its hiring demands are fulfilled so assistance can be provided in a swift manner and the victims of the Hurricane can begin the difficult process of restoring their lives.”
