FEMA plan calls for less bureaucracy, more civilian disaster preparedness
from Arizona Republic
From March 22:
The head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency vowed to cut down on "bureaucratic burdens" after an especially devastating hurricane and wildfire season, saying the agency needs to empower people with life-saving skills to speed rescue and recovery efforts. FEMA Administrator Brock Long, in recent comments to the House Homeland Security Committee, outlined lessons learned in his first eight months on the job — a stretch that included hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria along with the largest wildfire in modern California history and a series of smaller-scale disasters across the country.
