Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Requests


The Information and Privacy Officer is the principal contact point within FEMS for advice and policy guidance on matters pertaining to the administration of the FOIA. All requests are handled professionally and expeditiously.

FOIA requests may be oral or in writing. If the request is written, the envelope shall prominently be marked "FOIA Request." The FOIA Officer may request that an oral request be reduced to writing, if the requested records are not customarily made available by the public body.

For more information on how to file a FOIA request, visit the Government Resource Center.
