FARMINGTON — A Federal Emergency Management Agency disaster relief center will be set up at the University of Maine at Farmington beginning Tuesday to assist individuals and families who had property damage from heavy rains and flooding Dec. 17-21.

The center will be used by FEMA representatives to help the public and provide the status of applications and general information on federal disaster assistance.

The center will be open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. in Room 001 in the UMF Roberts Learning Center at 270 Main St. until further notice.

 The center was established after President Joe Biden declared a major disaster for the state of Maine. FEMA signs will be posted leading to the building. No appointments are necessary.

 “UMF provided housing for utility workers as they restored power to Franklin County following the December storm, and now, the university is stepping up to house FEMA as it assists Maine citizens whose homes and businesses were damaged by the storm. It’s all part of UMF’s commitment to the community,” UMF President Joseph McDonnell said.
