Resources To Have On Hand

First responders and local officials are working around the clock to assess damages from Hurricane Irma and get our communities up and running again.

While they complete this work, please stay off the roads until local officials give the all-clear.

As you assess the damages to your home and property, here are some helpful resources to have on hand:

  • View up-to-date emergency declarations from Governor Deal here.
  • Report a power outage by contacting your power provider. The two main providers in Georgia are:   
    • Georgia Power (contact here or at 888-891-0938)
    • Georgia EMC (find your local branch here)
  • Call your local non-emergency police line to report a downed tree in a main road.
  • Follow Georgia 511 for real-time traffic updates 24/7. 
  • View a list of Georgia shelter locations here or call 1-800-TRY-GEMA.
  • Self-report basic damage information on homes and businesses with GEMHSA here
  • Apply for FEMA assistance or register your sustained damage here.
  • List you and your family as safe with the Red Cross here.
  • Red Cross disaster assistance: 1-877-500-8645.
  • Download FEMA’s app with emergency information by county here.
  • Download GEMHSA’s Ready Georgia mobile with the “I’m safe” alert feature here.
  • See safety tips from the Georgia Emergency Management& Homeland Security Agency here.

I remain in constant contact with Governor Deal’s office and our state and federal agencies, and my team is ready to help however we can.

God Bless,
