JACKSON COUNTY, Ore. — The deadline for people in Jackson County to apply for disaster assistance through FEMA has been extended until the end of November, county officials announced on Monday.

"We are very pleased that FEMA has given fire survivors a couple more weeks to register for assistance," shares John Vial, EOC Director. "While over 4,500 citizens have registered, we continue to hear of fire victims that have not registered and may be losing out on potential benefits."

Jackson County said that more than $19 million has already been provided to victims of the Almeda and South Obenchain fires to date. Vial has expressed concern in the past that a number of Jackson County residents impacted by the fires have not signed up for assistance, and at a disproportionately higher rate than other areas of the state.

To register with FEMA, go to www.DisasterAssistance.gov/, call 1-800-621-3362 (FEMA), or go to the Multi-Agency Resource Center (MARC) located at Central High School in Medford, 815 S. Oakdale Ave. The MARC is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through this Saturday.

Saturday, November 21, will be the last day the MARC will be open, but registrations can still be completed on-line or via phone.

"FEMA monetary awards help eligible survivors pay for rent, home repair/replacement and many other serious disaster-related needs, including replacement or repair of vehicles, funeral expenses, medical or dental expenses and miscellaneous other costs," the agency said in a statement. "To be reimbursed by FEMA, survivors should photograph damage and save repair receipts."

In areas of Siskiyou County hit by the Slater Fire, the deadline for FEMA aid is December 16.

Survivors are asked to contact their insurance companies and file a claim for the damage before registering with FEMA, even if they aren't certain if they will be eligible. FEMA may be able to cover some costs that insurance doesn't cover.
