The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) at 1486 Miner Street will be closing on Friday, June 21, 2013. FEMA Mobile Disaster Recovery Teams will continue working in Des Plaines making personal visits until June 27, 2013.

According to a bulletin issued by FEMA, many residents may mistakenly believe they have registered with FEMA. After the storms and flooding that took place between April 16 and May 5, 2013, many affected residents have spoken to representatives from insurance companies and state and local agencies about disaster assistance and may be under the mistaken impression they have registered with FEMA.
