Comanche County Emergency Management dispels FEMA rumors

COMANCHE COUNTY, Okla._Comanche County Emergency Management wants to dispel the rumors that FEMA is in the county.

The agency said the Red Cross is helping with immediate assistance in the county, but it is a long process before FEMA steps in. Governor Mary Fallin has approved the county's disaster request, and it's now in the hands of President Obama.

Comanche County Emergency Management Director Michael Merritt said the county is working hard to get FEMA aid as soon as possible.

"I know what they are going through and I feel for every one of them and we are trying to do everything we can to get what we can down here," said Merritt.

If you know that you will need FEMA assistance, you are encouraged to document all damage and sign up by calling the Western County Barn at (580) 429-3219 or Emergency Management at (580) 355-0535.

You can also sign up for immediate assistance at the two Red Cross emergency shelters.
