Okay, I am British and i don't understand quite why everyone seems to put FEMA into some evil empire NWO typecast. Surely FEMA is there to make the
decisions that humans cloud with emotion, such as who shall live and who shall die if a seriously extreme event should occur (Yellowstone super
volcanoe, Nuclear blast, chemical/biological weapon).
It takes a certain clinical and clear thinking to avoid an entire Nation/populous being destroyed. You must enforce a quarantine in certain
situations. Could you condem your hometown and all within it to save the Nation/ what about your family. Humans do not like admitting our own
mortality and Panic is definitely a killer. Hurricane Katrina was probably not their finest hour but at least you have an organisation many countries
do not. These are serious issues and believe many people around the world mis-interpret FEMA's preparations for a a possible extreme event as
evidence of the Government seeking to take over everyone and everything.
DISASTER. It strikes anytime, anywhere. It takes many forms -- a hurricane, an earthquake, a tornado, a flood, a fire or a hazardous spill, an act of
nature or an act of terrorism. It builds over days or weeks, or hits suddenly, without warning. Every year, millions of Americans face disaster, and
its terrifying consequences.
On March 1, 2003, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) became part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The primary mission of
the Federal Emergency Management Agency is to reduce the loss of life and property and protect the Nation from all hazards, including natural
disasters, acts of terrorism, and other man-made disasters, by leading and supporting the Nation in a risk-based, comprehensive emergency management
system of preparedness, protection, response, recovery, and mitigation.
Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, PL 100-707, signed into law November 23, 1988; amended the Disaster Relief Act of
1974, PL 93-288. This Act constitutes the statutory authority for most Federal disaster response activities especially as they pertain to FEMA and
FEMA has more than 2,600 full time employees. They work at FEMA headquarters in Washington D.C., at regional and area offices across the country, the
Mount Weather Emergency Operations Center, and the National Emergency Training Center in Emmitsburg, Maryland. FEMA also has nearly 4,000 standby
disaster assistance employees who are available for deployment after disasters. Often FEMA works in partnership with other organizations that are part
of the nation's emergency management system. These partners include state and local emergency management agencies, 27 federal agencies and the
American Red Cross.
Anyone who could enlighten me as to why this Organisation which seems like a sensible and rational organisation funded responsibly is a bad thing i
would love to know why and produce evidence because it all seems like word of mouth nonsense to me. FEMA maybe the last line of defence to save the
USA from a calamity.
As ever your thoughts are appreciated.
