Disaster Debris Collection Contractors are on our public roadways picking up the debris left behind by Hurricane Matthew - please be patient, separate your debris by type, and leave your debris on the curb - they will get to your street soon!  Since the contractors can only work on public roadways, residents living on private roads are responsible for removing their debris - it can be taken to any one of the three established collection sites:  3163 Bailey Rd in Fernandina Beach, 37356 Pea Farm Rd in Hilliard, and on Woods Ln in Callahan, half a mile south of Crawford Rd.  
Note:  Nassau County will only be collecting hurricane-related vegetative and structure-demolition-type debris (e.g., wood, shingles, drywall, carpet).  If you are still unsure about what to do with your hurricane-related debris or have other hurricane-debris-related questions, contact Public Works at 530-6225

Hurricane debris in our waterways is dangerous to people, boats, and the environment.
Please call the Nassau County EOC at 548-0900 and report its location so we can have it removed.  


Hurricane Matthew – Recovery update 10/18/16 1150 hrs

Individual Assistance from FEMA is now available for residents of Volusia, Flagler, Putnam, and St. Johns counties who sustained damage from Hurricane Matthew to their primary residence, have losses not covered by insurance, or are underinsured.  Joint local, state, and FEMA damage assessments are ongoing in other counties affected by Hurricane Matthew, including Nassau - we expect a determination later this week.

If you have insurance and sustained damages, call your insurance company to file an insurance claim.  FEMA cannot duplicate assistance for losses that are covered by insurance. However, you may still be eligible for assistance from FEMA for losses not covered by insurance.  This Wind Damage, Flood Damage, and the NFIP fact sheet will help explain more.

Applying is the first step toward getting FEMA disaster assistance. FEMA can help eligible applicants pay for uninsured or underinsured home repairs, temporary housing, personal property and other serious disaster-related needs through its grant programs.
