1. A FEMA representative or FEMA Inspector will never ask you for money or to sign a contract for home repairs
2. FEMA representatives will have identification
3. If you haven’t applied for assistance or called your insurance company, be suspicious
4. Use local area contractors or businesses, be leery of door to door solicitors
5. If your concerned, ask them to come back at a scheduled time and ask a neighbor to stay with you during the meeting
6. Ask if you can take their picture. Write down a license plate and get a good description of their vehicle
7. Be suspicious of anyone who offers to increase the amount of your disaster damage assessment.
8. Be skeptical of offers to help you fill out loan or grant forms and applications for a fee. If you need help filling out your Small Business Administration (SBA) loan package, call the SBA toll-free number at 1-800-659-2955 or go to the Disasters Assistance Center at the Twin Peaks Mall, 1250 S. Hover Rd., Longmont, CO

Call the Longmont Police Department immediately at (303) 651-8501, if you suspect fraud or someone working a scam in your neighborhood.
If you have applied for assistance through FEMA, you can speed the process by having key items available. FEMA representatives will need to see:

1. Picture Identification (Driver’s License, Voter Registration Card, etc.) and you will need to know your Social Security number
2. Proof of Ownership/Occupancy of damaged residence (Structural Insurance, Tax Bill, Mortgage Payment Book/Utility Bill etc.)
3. Insurance documents: Home and/or Auto (Structural Insurance/Auto Declaration Sheet etc.)
4. List of household occupants living in residence at time of disaster

UNIVERSAL STUDIOS ORLANDO, FLORIDA- Longmont, Colorado was selected as the official Green Flag City for the 2013 FIREBALL RUN live event & online TV series. Recruitment of the series from Universal Studios Florida was a collaborate effort between City of Longmont Economic Development and Longmont Tourism.

Scheduled live events and filming was to begin this Saturday with celebrity, business leader, and elected leadership arriving from all over the world. Longmont was selected as the official starting line city for the massive 2000 mile, 45 team live action online TV series. Then came the biblical storm. Show producers in Florida closely monitored national news and for a moment it seemed the production would be scrapped in the city; instead the opposite happened.

The shows Executive Producer refused to let a biblical storm change their view on Longmont. “It was decided amongst show leadership we will stick with this city and see it through. We have over 100 of the countries most progressive business leaders and influential industry leaders from all around arriving into Longmont. While here, we’re going to help these people get back to normal.” Said Sanchez.

FIREBALL RUN Teams will meet tomorrow at 9:00 am at Longmont Meals on Wheels. Together they will serve as “Celebrity Delivery Drivers” expediting meals throughout Longmont in vehicles ranging from a 1978 Rolls Royce, to several Ferraris, even the Time Car from Back to the Future. Celebrity drivers include Astronaut Jon McBride, Lamborghini Legend Valentino Balboni, Longbeach Grand Prix Winner Shea Holbrook, World Champion Wake boarder Tarah Mikacich, the Co-host of car warriors on SpeedChannel, Ray McClelland, renown stunt driver Artie Malesci, 2 Ohio State Representatives, the Mayor of Riverside California, and an entire barrage of business and elected leaders from all around. “This is awesome. These people from other cities putting our interests over theirs.” Said Karla “More than an entertainment series. FIREBALL RUN is good people, having a great time, doing the right thing”, said Matthew Morak, the shows Community Affairs liaison.

In addition to serving meals, FIREBALL RUN organized an impromptu telethon for this Saturdays live event taping. All drivers will man phones eliciting their families, friends, and fans to make cash donations to the City of Longmont Foundation. 100% of the proceeds to be use exclusively to support the flood effort.

FIREBALL RUN is the Most Epic Adventurally in America® a gripping and emotional 8 day, 2500 mile, life-sized trivia game, where America serves as the game board; 40 driving teams compete for glory, bragging rights, and a plastic road sign, all while aiding in a massive effort to recover America's missing children. The highly popular online TV episodic series is watched world wide by an audience of 1.7 million and has aided in the recovery of 38 missing kids. Last year the show earned $44 million in positive exposure for its previous Green Flag City, Independence Ohio.
