The Morris County Department of Law and Public Safety and the county Office of Emergency Management will hold public assistance meetings for non-governmental businesses and nonprofit agencies including schools and libraries that have requested public assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency because of Hurricane Sandy.

The meetings will afford the applicants an opportunity to discuss their individual needs and concerns with a FEMA representative, said Jeffrey S. Paul, Director of the Morris County Office of Emergency Management.

Those entities attending should have already filed Form 90-49 with FEMA, Paul said.  Attendance at a FEMA public assistance meeting is an administrative requirement in FEMA’s public assistance reimbursement process, according to Paul.

The meetings will be held at 10 a.m. and at 2 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 13, and again on Friday, Dec. 14, at the county’s Public Safety Training Academy, 500 W. Hanover Ave., in Parsippany. Each meeting is expected to last approximately one hour.

Any entity that is planning to attend should call the Office of Emergency Management at 973-829-8600 to schedule its meeting date and time.
