The director will then send an official to assess the homeowner's damage. "Although we do have a West Vir- ginia State of Emergency, no Federal Disaster Declaration has been made yet," said Stephen Kappa, WVOES director. "I want citizens to know that a phone call to the city or county director is the first step in recovery." "Your county director will know the status of available government assistance and the contacts for relief organizations." There are four more steps residents can complete to more quickly facili- tate the assistance process. Quickly contact your insurance company, even if you do not have flood insurance. If your flood dam- ages are not covered, request a written statement verifying the fact. Take photographs of the damage. Write the name of the room or area on the back of the photographs. Make a list of all damage and/or destroyed items for each affected area or room. If you have vehicle damage or destruction, contact your insurance company. If you do not have compre- hensive coverage, you will need a copy of the policy or a letter from your insurance company. Addition- ally, you will need a copy of your title, registration and insurance card along with a mechanic's statement itemiz- ing the damages and verifying it was from the flooding or landslides. "We know that having your home flooded is a very traumatic experi- ence," said Kappa. "Gathering the right documents, photographs and lists make the insurance or assistance pro- cess go more smoothly, and definitely, more quickly." ilmer Goings AMERICORPS NATIONAL FAMILY VOLUNTEER DAY Americorps members, Sandra Harding and Sandra Hess, are invit- ing families to celebrate National Fam- ily Volunteer Day.
