CREEK COUNTY, Oklahoma -

Victims of last month's wildfires in Creek County have a new place to go for help.

FEMA, the Small Business Administration, and the Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management opened a new mobile recovery center Tuesday afternoon.

It's at the Olive First Baptist Church at 9372 South 433rd West Avenue in Drumright.

Victims don't have to visit a center to get help, but organizers say this is the perfect place for people to go to get face-to-face information about the assistance that's available.

"FEMA provides grants that might be to help rebuild your home. It might be to help get you funds to buy a new home, to rent another place, even other needs assistance, such as if you lost your tools or medical supplies," said Patricia Brach, of FEMA.

The center will be open through September 10, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

The Disaster Recovery Center in Mannford will stay open until further notice.

So far, FEMA has had 586 applicants in Creek County and provided $3.6 million in aid.
