FEMA begins individual aid assessment


Colville Tribal Emergency Services’ staff led a Federal Emergency Management Agency team that included the Red Cross, the Washington State Emergency Management Office and the Small Business Administration into the devastation of the Colville Reservation’s fires, Sep. 16.

The intent was to continue assessing damages, including damage to individuals.

“This is one step in the process. It’s important to make that clear at this point. This week’s efforts are a joint—state, local, tribal, FEMA—information gathering process,” said Camilla Rossie, FEMA spokesperson, who called the effort “a mechanism to determine the impact and magnitude of the damage.”
