The FEMA Center at the firehouse on Bridge Avenue in Bay Head will close for good at 7 p.m. Sat.
"State and federal officials have been paying close attention to how many applicants are visiting centers throughout the state," says a prepared statement from FEMA. "Over the past weeks, the number of individuals seeking help at the center in Bay Head has dropped, indicating the information needs of survivors in the area have mostly been met."
Similarly, FEMA is also closing a disaster recovery center in Newark due to declining visits.
Since the Bay Head disaster recovery center opened Nov. 16, there have been nearly 2,000 visits from Hurricane Sandy survivors, the statement says. For more information about how to contact FEMA, please see attached PDF.
