Today, FEMA is taking a step to put more tools in your hands by launching m.fema.gov, our new mobile website. We recognize that when it comes to disasters, many individuals are going to try to get the information they need by using their mobile device--so we’re rolling out this mobile version of our website so people can get the information they need when disaster strikes.
The new site – m.fema.gov – is laid out in a user friendly, question and answer format, walking users through the important issues they face when dealing with disasters, including:
How do I apply for FEMA Aid?
What should I do in a disaster?
How can I help others?
This is just a first step. We will be making several enhancements to m.fema.gov in the coming months, including the ability to apply for individual assistance when a disaster has been declared by the President, check on the status of an application and update an existing application. And we will keep improving the site, working to ensure that Americans have easy access to the tools they need to prepare for and, when needed, recover from a disaster in their community.
Today’s launch of m.fema.gov comes with just over a month remaining until the start of hurricane season on June 1. We encourage everyone to visit http://m.fema.gov/hurricanes.htm on their mobile device and learn more about the simple steps you can take to make sure you and your family ready for hurricane season.
