Disaster Kit Available
WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Tom Marino, PA-10, has tabbed members of his congressional staff to serve as PA-10 Recovery Coordinators to assist individuals and businesses affected by recent flooding.
“I understand that many of my constituents are suffering and they want answers and they want them now,” Marino said. “The last thing I want to do is to give them an 800 number and hand them off to a Washington bureaucrat. The least we can do is to take that headache away from them.”
“As a member of the House Homeland Security Committee, I know that FEMA is doing everything possible to respond expeditiously, but I want my constituents to know that my staff is here to help them cut through the red tape,” he said.
Marino is asking flood victims to call his Washington, D.C., office at 202-225-3731. The office will be open throughout the weekend.
Two of the congressman’s three constituent service centers – in Williamsport and Sunbury – are open and operational. The Tunkhannock office is temporarily closed due to severe flooding in Wyoming County.
"I’ve directed my DC staff to come into the office this weekend to take calls from flood victims and to get the process started,” Marino said.
Constituents also may download a disaster assistance information kit from the congressman’s website. See DOWNLOAD link below.
