Katrina Aftermath: FEMA Chief’s a Feckless Firefighting Fuckup

This FEMA clown Brown gotta get taken down.

As New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin pleaded on national television for firefighters – his own are exhausted after working around the clock for a week – a battalion of highly trained men and women sat idle Sunday in a muggy Sheraton Hotel conference room in Atlanta.

Many of the firefighters, assembled from Utah and throughout the United States by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, thought they were going to be deployed as emergency workers.

Instead, they have learned they are going to be community-relations officers for FEMA, shuffled throughout the Gulf Coast region to disseminate fliers and a phone number: 1-800-621-FEMA.

You need people to do community relations work? Go raid Tulane for whatever students are still on campus or something, but you don’t take over a thousand firefighters from all over the country and then detail a single one of them to handing out fucking fliers!

More on this madness:

“On the news every night you hear (hurricane victims say), `How come everybody forgot us?'” said Joseph Manning, a firefighter from Washington, Pa. “We didn’t forget. We’re stuck in Atlanta drinking beer.”

As of Tuesday, some of the firefighters, like Thomas Blomgren of Battle Creek, Mich., had waited at the hotel for four days. Now he and a colleague have been told they may be sent to a hurricane relief camp in South Carolina to do paperwork rather than help the devastated Gulf Coast.

“FEMA hired the best of the best firefighters, got them together and gave them secretary jobs,” Blomgren said.
