Vermonters heading to their local fair this summer and fall will find something new in addition to animals, carnival rides and fried dough.
Officials with the Federal Emergency Management Agency will be on hand to offer residents information about rebuilding homes damaged by this spring's flooding.
Wesley Parker is a FEMA representative.
She says mitigation advisers will be on site to answer questions on a variety of topics.
(Parker) "Things that they may be able to do with their homes to either recover from the evens of this spring and early summer, or whether they are looking to do things that will reduce their damages the next time we have heavy rains in this part of the world."
(Host) FEMA officials will be on hand at the Caledonia County Fair, the Champlain Fair, the Vermont State Fair and the Tunbridge Word's Fair.
They will also be attending a number of Farmer's Markets around the state.
