Disaster Assistance

Dealing with a Disaster at Home
During a disaster, federal, state and local agencies work together to help communities react and recover.  Please review information on my disaster relief efforts.

Preparing for a Disaster
Before a disaster strikes, work with your family to create a plan. Check out our recommendations to "Build a Kit, Make a Plan and Be Informed."  Just a little preparation and planning can make a big difference if you are ever in a disaster situation. 

Dealing with a Crisis Overseas
If you or your loved one are overseas during a crisis, we can assist in coordinating emergency information with the State Department.   We will send you updates and travel advisories with the latest information.

We recommend that all international travelers register with the Smart Traveller Enrollment Program, STEP, a free program from the Department of State that allows you to register your travel with the nearest embassy and provide any necessary updates directly to you.

If you need emergency passport assistance, visit this website and contact my office.
