They will be working mostly in the Siler/Cerrillos area and the area west on the frontage road west of the Walmart on I-25 and Cerrillos. Their work will be focused on, primarily, the elderly and/or those in greatest need, to assist homeowners to get back into their homes as quickly as possible.
FEMA: Following a municipal proclamation of emergency from the City of Santa Fe and a request from the State of New Mexico, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is sending Preliminary Damage Assessment teams to look at the damages caused by the heavy rains in Santa Fe and other parts of the state.
Additional External Resources: City of Santa Fe is working with intrastate partners, including City of Albuquerque; Los Alamos County; and various volunteer and civic organizations to assist in response and recovery efforts.
