Governor DeSantis: FDEM Secures 50 Trailers from FEMA and Donates them to Bay County
Today, Governor DeSantis announced that the Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) is donating 50 FEMA travel trailers to Bay County. By securing these trailers from FEMA and working with Bay County, DEM is providing additional alternative housing to residents impacted by Hurricane Michael.
"Providing enough housing has been one of the biggest challenges Northwest Florida has faced following Hurricane Michael’s landfall in October," said Governor DeSantis. "Today we were able to provide these trailers in a way that allows us to cut some red tape, step in and make sure people have a place to live after this devastating storm."
"Since day one of this administration, the Division of Emergency Management has been working to find real solutions to the problems people are facing in the Panhandle," said FDEM Director Jared Moskowitz. "I applaud FEMA and Bay County for working closely with us to provide much needed relief for the people of Northwest Florida."
