Will Johnson (36) firefighter, loves the outdoors and going to the movies.
Mary Johnson (34) stay at home mom, looks after her and Will's child.
Brady Johnson (9) enrolled in 4th grade, loves the outdoors and race cars.
This is the Johnson Family. The Johnson's have just received word that there is a category 4 hurricane. As the storm nears, the town is ordered to evacuate as dangerous winds and rain could cause severe damages.
Don't worry Mary, Im sure that the house can survive a little water and wind while we are gone.
I don't know Will. This storm is supposed to be really bad.
The Hurricane batters the area with heavy rain and wind for three days and the Johnson's can't help think that their house is destroyed.
As the hurricane dissipates, the family returns home to see what has happened to their home. When they arrive they see their house has been completely ruined.
Wow, the damages are a lot worse than I had expected...
Oh Will what are we going to do? We don't have anything left!
Luckily, one of Will's co-workers went through the same situation when he lived in Florida. He told Will that he qualified for FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency). With this knowledge. Will contacted a representative from the agency to help his family.
Yes Mr. Johnson, FEMA will provide needed financial and medical support to you and your family while you rebuild and become self sufficient
That is fantastic news! My wife will be thrilled. I'm so glad that FEMA could help my family.
Just one year later, Will and Mary have found new jobs and rebuilt their home with the funds and assistance from FEMA.
