(Brooksville, FL) A Disaster Survivor Assistance Team (DSAT), provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), arrived in Hernando County today. DSAT provides information directly to survivors by canvassing the community door-to-door and at locations where citizens frequent, so that everyone has equal access and understanding of the assistance process. Along with providing information, they also register survivors for FEMA’s Individual Assistance Program and conduct individual case status visits door-to-door.
The DSAT is not available by phone and does not have an office location. They will be wearing FEMA identification.
While DSAT’s primary goal is to inform survivors about the recovery process, the team also collects information that can aid the community, such as identifying unmet needs and other areas of concern.
