Federal Emergency Management Inspectors (FEMA) Inspectors have arrived in Beaufort County to begin damage assessment and inspections for those that have applied for individual assistance and other assignments.
When a FEMA Inspector comes to visit your property, be sure they show you proper identification. All FEMA inspectors have prominent photo ID badges. If you are not shown photo identification, then do not allow the inspection. FEMA Inspectors document disaster-related damage but will never ask for any form of payment. Unfortunately, disasters often bring out criminals who prey on the needs of disaster survivors - so beware of scams and scam artists.
If you suspect someone is posing as a FEMA inspector, please contact the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office at 843-524-2777.
