A FEMA Mobile Registration Intake Center (MRICs) will open for Hurricane Sally survivors today - Sunday, Sept. 27 - through Tuesday, Sept. 29 at the Foley Satellite Courthouse, 201 E. Section Avenue.

Another mobile center will be in Atmore in the parking lot at the Atmore City Hall Complex, 201 E. Louisville Avenue.

Both centers will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day to serve impacted residents of Baldwin, Escambia and Mobile counties.

The centers are part of FEMA’s and the State of Alabama’s ongoing response and recovery mission supporting hurricane survivors. The MRIC will be operated by FEMA personnel and serve as a point of registration and information for eligible individuals and families.

MRICs are one option available to register with FEMA and apply for federal disaster assistance. These centers operate under protocols to protect the health and safety of registrants. Survivors are highly encouraged to wear masks or face coverings when visiting an MRIC.

Additional MRICs will open in Baldwin, Mobile, and Escambia counties in the coming days. The locations and dates will be announced when details are finalized.
