PAGE 10 THE SUNDANCE TIMES JANUARY 30, 1997 p 8teven Cochrane, State Exercise officer, Wyo- ming Emergency Management Agency, was one of two instructors for an Exercise Design course held in Sundance January 21, 22, 23. The other instructor was Nancy Jo nmlnen, State training officer. The course is designed to prepare local officials to prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters. SD declared disaster area On January 10, 1997, President Clinton declared a major disaster in the State of South Dakota due to damages and losses caused by a severe winter storm and blizzard conditions that occurred on January 3, 1997 and continuing. As a result three Wyoming coun- ties are declared contiguous counties eligible for Federal Disas- ter assistance. The purpose of this deslgnaUon is to provide emergency loan assis- tance to farmers and ranchers who have suffered physical and pro- duction losses affecting the ability of their operation to continue on a reasonable sound basis. All appll- cants must have sufficient equity to secure the loan and the opera- tion must show repayment ability. Under the FSA emergency loan program, the amount available to quadlfled producers cannot exceed the sum of the production loss or $500,000 whichever is less. The FSA interest rate is three and three fourths percent (3.75%) for the entire amount of the loan. FSA emergency loans are available only to operators of not larger than family-size farms and operators unable to obtain credit elsewhere. The deadline for applying for an emergency loan under this disas- ter designation is September 10, 1997 for physical and production losses.
