BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – FEMA is opening a drive-thru disaster recovery center Saturday in Cameron Parish for those affected by Hurricane Laura.

The center will be set up at Cameron Prairie National Wildlife Center, located at 1428 Hwy. 27 in Bell City. It will be open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The center will provide a safe and easy outlet for survivors to scan important documents into their case files without the risk of catching COVID-19 in an enclosed, public space, according to FEMA. Although the services are available only via drive thru, those seeking assistance must still wear masks.

The drive thru is staffed with FEMA personnel who are available to scan documents, assist with registration and answer questions about disaster-assistance programs, according to a FEMA news release.

No appointments are required for this drive thru service.
