In response to the severe storm event on April 17-19, 2013, a Disaster Proclamation was issued for Cook County. The Cook County Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management is collecting information from homeowners, renters and businesses related to flood damage and costs from local jurisdictions in order to provide it to the Illinois Emergency Management Agency. The information will be used to preliminarily determine whether the area is eligible for federal disaster assistance. Updates regarding this process will be provided to residents as they are received.
If your home or business sustained damage in the severe storm event, please fill out an Initial Damage Assessment Formand e-mail it to Emergency Management Director Patrick Kenny at email@example.com. You may also fax the document to (708) 246-4871, or drop the form off at Village Hall, 740 Hillgrove Avenue.
Completed forms are due by Friday, April 26, 2013 at noon in order to meet the County's deadline.
