Mayer and DeBoiser Views on FEMA
The article by Mayer and DeBoiser concludes with this recommendation: “Entirely eliminate certain types of disasters from FEMA’s portfolio… severe storms and tornadoes tend to be localized events that, while causing property damage and even sometimes costing lives, rarely outstrip the abilities of state and local governments to provide recovery and repair relief.” Using the Mayer and DeBoiser article plus other relevant materials from this week’s readings, review both the impact of recent tornadoes in Virginia, FEMA’s decision to deny the request for federal disaster aid and the governor’s subsequent decision to once again appeal the FEMA decision (http://www2.timesdispatch.
