FEMA, Disaster Housing and Arrant Stupidity

Apr 15, 2008 by

So even on a business trip to Vegas I cannot escape the stench of FEMA incompetence. It seems they have a great new plan for disaster housing since their prior efforts were both inadequate and toxic: modular housing. From the comments in this article in the NY Times it seems they are still doing a heckuva job!

“FEMA seems like a babe in the woods on this stuff,” said John Henneberger, co-director of the Texas Low-Income Housing Information Service, which is working on trailer alternatives. “They seem to be clueless.”

The view in Washington is not much different. “It just sounds like they still don’t know what they’re talking about, to be frank,” said Ronald D. Utt, a senior research fellow at the conservative Heritage Foundation. “To say, O.K., we didn’t get it right with trailers so we’ll move on to something more exotic like prefab housing is a bizarre suggestion.”

FEMA clueless? What a shock!
