FEMA: Are They Finally Ready?

Friday, FEMA -- which has always had a highly effective public relations operation -- briefed President Trump on the hurricane season. Exactly why FEMA (rather than NOAA which is where the forecasters are) did this was not stated.

Here's the problem: FEMA always says it is ready. And then when an Andrew, a Katrina or a Sandy hits their performance is woeful.

Yes, everyone should be ready to take care of themselves for three days (food, water, sanitation, etc.). But, in some cases, it has taken FEMA weeks to provide meaningful assistance.

FEMA are you truly ready this time?
