Seven On Your Side has been fighting for years for people impacted by Superstorm Sandy, and many residents have complained about FEMA and how much money the government paid them.Now, a lot of them are getting letters now offering help, but you need to know what you are doing before you respond to it. McSherry is part of disaster services history as one of first group of FEMA Corps members to experience the new program.When the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) agreed to form the FEMA Corps national service program, the agencies had no idea how quickly its new program would be put to the test. They provide support in areas ranging from working directly with disaster survivors to supporting disaster recovering centers to sharing valuable disaster preparedness and mitigation information with the public.During Hurricane Sandy operations, FEMA Corps members made their presence felt right away.

The emergency kits should contain enough non-perishable food and water to last at least 3 days. John Leshik, Jr., says his parents were drastically shortchanged by FEMA, getting just pennies on the dollar of their flood insurance payout after adjusters inspected their home. Teams on the ground in New York and New Jersey provided direct assistance to disaster survivors by working at Disaster Recovery Centers and going door-to-door in impacted neighborhoods providing disaster information.Through mid-July, FEMA Corps teams provided 419,207 hours of Hurricane Sandy assistance.
