Congressman Chris Smith resource list
The devastation caused by Superstorm Sandy is heartbreaking and unprecedented. I have been meeting nearly around-the-clock with local officials, emergency management teams and first responders in our municipalities—especially those along the shore. I am deeply impressed and grateful for their hard work, leadership and commitment.
As we begin the recovery and rebuilding process, I would like to provide you with information on the resources available to residents of our state in need of assistance. Below please find a list of websites and phone numbers that may prove helpful as we move forward. Your safety and the safety of your family and friends continues to be the highest priority. If you have family, neighbors or loved ones who have suffered damages or are in need of assistance, please pass this message along to ensure those in need have the necessary and accurate information.
The most important step you can take right now is to register with FEMA. Registration will ensure that FEMA has the essential information to provide timely assistance to all New Jersey residents. (Click here to Register). To register over the phone, please call: 1-800-621-3362.
