To all Town of Scituate Residents,

I wanted to update residents who sustained damage related to the September 10th -13th storm.  I will be meeting with FEMA representatives this week to begin the process of enrolling any residents affected by these storms.  Attache below is some information on the types of assistance available.

Relief in the form of a Disaster Declaration has not yet been issued for the December 18th storm nor the January 10th storm.  We are still awaiting the issuance and I will continue to pursue any avenues to get us to that end.

Rhode Island Emergency Management Agency has just posted “Damage Assessment Forms” on their website.

Those residents affected by the September 10-13th storm are also asked to register with FEMA using the information below.

Rhode Island Remembers COVID-19 Local Memorial_flyer

The Rhode Island Remembers: COVID -19 Memorial was a successful statewide memorial that took place June 25-July 2, 2022 on the Rhode Island state house lawn with almost 4,00 flags honoring each Rhode Islander who died from COVID-19.
Our memorial was the only statewide COVID -19 take place in the nation. We have modeled it after the national memorial that took place in the fall of 2021.[]
We further kicked it up a notch by distributing the flags that were at the statehouse to each RI municipality for local memorials to honor their own COVID -19 deaths at a site of their choice to make it truly a statewide community based event. [see attached flyer].
Scituate lost 13 good people to COVID-19.  Thus we have 13 flags honoring them at the gazebo in North Scituate.
Scituate residents with our Girl Scouts were involved with all things “flags” from planning, to installing, taking them down and distributing to RI cities and towns for localized memorials.  We also had clergy from Scituate's Shepherd of the Valley UMC on site for grief counseling and more.
Scituate made Rhode Island a better place.
