Hosted by township, three workshops available on Saturday, Jan. 26

Workshops to help answer residents' questions regarding FEMA following Hurricane Sandy have been scheduled by the township for next weekend. 

The township will host the workshops at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 26 in the High School East cafetorium. Online registration for each session is available on the township's website

"EMA Representatives will be present to explain the process of rebuilding your home and address issues including the base flood elevation advisory maps, rebuilding options, Increased Cost of Compliance (ICC) program, Hazard Mitigation Grant Program, FEMA claim process, Small Business Administration, and other topics of interest," the township said in a statement. 

Staff from the township will also be on-hand to answer questions.

All sessions are sold out. It said that there will be 400 participants per session but the Eventbrite ticketing process only seemed to have 30 something per session. The first session was filled almost immediately after this article was posted. Are the rest of the participants "walk-in". I was able to get tickets.

FEMA should be going into the disaster areas and filing these online forms for the weary residents! We see the residents at our volunteers events where we help them, FEMA should be there as well! This is bs. Many elderly arent computer literate and are going to lose benefits they may be entitled too.

The plan is for the sessions to be video taped and posted online. In addition, the township may consider another information session in the future for those unable to attend this one.
