FEMA Office Closes Due to Bad Weather!
We’re joking, right? No, not really.
Ten FEMA offices on storm battered Staten Island closed Wednesday as the snow storm roared in on the area, and in one office, a sign hung on the door read “Closed due to weather.” WOW! We found this from an actual FEMA training manual. We think this is what they are supposed to do:
Coordinates and monitors assistance programs
› Disseminates information
› Accepts applications (for disaster aid-assistance)
› Advises individuals, families, and businesses concerning available assistance
− Locates JFO and Recovery Center sites, to the extent feasible, in areas most heavily affected by the disaster
− Identifies staffing and other resource requirements
− Establishes an environment of compassion, assurance, efficiency, and expediency in all disaster assistance activities
