BOWIE, Md. (Sept. 8, 2004) — The Tire Industry Association (TIA) will offer resource assistance to its members in Florida, South Carolina and Georgia who were hit by hurricanes Charley and Frances.
TIA members can call (800) 876-8372, extension 103 for a list of available state resources as well as information about disaster assistance through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and recovery assistance from the Small Business Administration (SBA).
“We wanted to do something to help our members in this time of need and felt if we offered one central resource, it could reduce the time our members would have to search for contact information,” said Roy Littlefield, TIA's executive director. “We hope to reduce some of their frustration by having to make one phone call instead of 10.”
