Don't Fall Victim to FEMA Scam

Hennepin County is expected to soon receive a Federal Disaster Declaration. The declaration is for public assistance which includes government entities, and certain non-profit organizations. There has not been a federal individual assistance declaration at this time. No one from FEMA should be going to individual households in the area. Unfortunately, at disasters there are sometimes instances where individuals posing as FEMA employees have gone door to door telling individuals that they can get them assistance if the citizen gives them their Social Security number and bank information. If this happens to you, please call 9-1-1 to report it as soon as possible.
