15 Colorado Counties Qualify for Federal Emergency Assistance

FEMA Facebook

DENVER – The Federal Emergency Management Agency and Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management announced today that 12 additional counties have been added to the September 12, 2013, presidential emergency disaster declaration for the Colorado flooding in Boulder, El Paso and Larimer counties.

The additional counties include Adams, Arapahoe, Broomfield, Clear Creek, Denver, Fremont, Jefferson, Morgan, Logan, Pueblo, Washington and Weld counties. Emergency assistance is designed to supplement state and local efforts to provide life-saving and life-sustaining measures to areas affected by the severe storms, flooding, landslides and mudslides.

Direct federal assistance includes a range of assistance undertaken by federal partners, including urban search and rescue teams, air operations, food, water, cots, generators, and emergency flood control measures.

In a separate action on Saturday, Sept. 14, President Barack Obama also declared a major disaster declaration for Boulder County. The President’s declaration makes federal assistance available to individuals in Boulder County for temporary housing and home repairs, low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses, and other programs to help individuals and business owners in their recovery.

FEMA’s mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards.
