FEMA Housing Begins Arriving for Joplin MO Survivors

The Neosho Daily News says ten Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) manufactured homes have arrived at Neosho’s Camp Crowder, south of Joplin, Missouri, where they will be prepared for distribution to several sites in factory-built communities in Jasper and Newton Counties.  Fifty more homes are set to arrive this week from the staging area in Selma, Alabama, for housing for those rendered homeless by the May 22 tornado.  FEMA housing is rent-free, including utilities, for up to 18 months.  The one and two bedroom Park model units are under 400 square feet and come with bunk beds.  The three bedroom dwellings are approximately 840 square feet and completely furnished.  Both comply with the Uniform Federal Accessibility Standards (UFAS).  Each unit is tested for indoor air quality and formaldehyde levels, and each one has smoke alarms, a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) weather radio, and a fire extinguisher.
