FEMA Administrator’s Thoughts on Potential DHS Shutdown
This article is a definite must read. I don’t think I have seen a candid view from a FEMA administrator yet on pending (or lack there of) legislation before. Granted, coming from the military, sometimes impacts are a little over exaggerated, but he definitely has a lot of substance to his thoughts. Ultimately, barring a large disaster, we should be ok in the short term because most of the state Emergency Management programs will continue to operate as normal. The issue will come in when we start running out of federal funds for the grant programs or the grant programs aren’t renewed towards the end of the year. I’m fairly confident there will be a resolution by then though.
