If you have damage to your property from the winds or floods of Hurricane Ida, it is very important to report it to get an actual determination of damage throughout the county. Damage assessments will be used by FEMA and PEMA to determine financial assistance (filling out a report does not guarantee financial assistance). Please also report any damages to Tinicum Township. For additional Hurricane Ida Updates, please click here to link to the Bucks County website.The Damage Assessment Form will be sent to your municipality after it is submitted.

If you need assistance with tree removal or mold mitigation Crisis Cleanup may be able to help. Crisis Cleanup will connect you with local volunteer groups, relief organizations, faith-based organizations and community groups to assist in cutting fallen trees, drywall, flooring and appliance removal, mold mitigation, and tarping roofs/sidewalls.  Call 844-965-1386 for assistance (services are free, but not guaranteed due to overwhelming demand). Please note, you must still report your damages via the damage assessment form, even if you are using other services to assist in cleanup.

United  Way Bucks County is available to help weather-impacted residents with cleanup kits, laundry detergent and non-perishable foods. Call 215-949-1660 or message them on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/UWBucks/ to make an appointment for pickup. Visit https://www.uwbucks.org/ for more information.
