Mobile FEMA center to open in Catskill; Belleayre center to close October 1

The Federal Emergency Management Agency recently announced that they will be opening a mobile disaster recovery center in Catskill, from Wednesday, September 28 through Friday, September 30.

The DRC will be located at the Catskill Community Life Church at 20 West Main Street. It will be open from 8am through 8pm, Wednesday through Friday.

From a FEMA press release announcing the opening of the Catskill DRC and two others, in Orange and Washington Counties:

After Friday the mobile DRCs will be deployed to other locations, but will return to each county at a date yet to be determined...

...The centers are staffed with disaster-recovery specialists who can provide information and answer questions about hurricane-related assistance, according to Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and state officials. Also on hand will be representatives from several New York State agencies and from the Small Business Administration.

Four other DRCs are still open six days a week, from 8am to 8pm, around the Catskills region:

Ulster County: Belleayre Ski Center, Route 28, Highmount

Schoharie County: Cobleskill Fire Department, 610 East Main Street, Cobleskill

Delaware County: Sidney Civic Center, 21 Liberty Street, Sidney

Greene County: Main Street, Prattsville

A spokesperson for FEMA told the Watershed Post this morning that the DRC at the Belleayre Ski Center was slated to close on October 1. The Cobleskill, Sidney and Prattsville DRCs will be open until further notice.
