Governor DeSantis announces more FEMA trailers coming to Bay County

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Governor Ron DeSantis announced Friday more FEMA trailers are coming to Bay County.

Governor DeSantis said the Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) is donating 50 FEMA travel trailers to Bay County. He said by securing these trailers from FEMA and working with Bay County, DEM is giving another option of housing to people impacted by Hurricane Michael.

“Providing enough housing has been one of the biggest challenges Northwest Florida has faced following Hurricane Michael’s landfall in October,” Governor DeSantis said. “[Friday] we were able to provide these trailers in a way that allows us to cut some red tape, step in and make sure people have a place to live after this devastating storm.”
