Three FEMA Mobile Registration Intake Centers (MRICs) will open this week for Hurricane Sally survivors who are residents of Baldwin, Escambia and Mobile counties.

  • And a third, made available by the Alabama Emergency Management Agency (AEMA), will open in Fairhope from Thursday, Oct. 1 through Saturday, Oct. 3, at 1100 Fairhope Ave., Fairhope in Baldwin County.
 
In addition, MRICs in Atmore and Foley, which opened on Sunday, have extended their days of operation. They are located:
 
  • The Atmore MRIC will remain open through Wednesday, Sept. 30, on the parking lot in the Atmore City Hall Complex, 201 E Louisville Ave., Atmore in Escambia County.
  • The Foley MRIC will be open through Saturday, Oct. 3 at the Foley Satellite Courthouse, 201 E. Section Ave., Foley in Baldwin County.
 
Hours of operation for all centers are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day (contingent on the weather).
The MRICs are part of FEMA’s and the State of Alabama’s ongoing response and recovery mission supporting hurricane survivors. MRICs are operated by FEMA and AEMA personnel and serve as a point of registration and information for eligible individuals and families.

“Mobile Registration Intake Centers are one registration option available to hurricane survivors, especially those without access to internet service or telephones,” said State Coordinating Officer Jeff Smitherman.  “We want every eligible survivor to register with FEMA and apply for federal disaster assistance. The centers are just one of a number of ways they can do that.”
