FEMA's initial response in New York to Hurricane Sandy by United States( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Hurricane Sandy made landfall on October 29, 2012 as a post-tropical cyclone just south of Atlantic City, New Jersey. The storm was the second largest Atlantic hurricane on record, with a diameter of tropical storm force winds spanning more than 900 miles. The storm affected one of the most densely populated areas in the northeastern United States, resulting in loss of life, major flooding, structural damage to real property, and loss of power throughout the region. The President declared an emergency on October 28, 2012, and declared a major disaster on October 30, 2012 for Individual Assistance and Public Assistance in seven counties in New York. A major snowstorm occurred 9 days later, causing additional damage and power outages. FEMA is providing 90 percent Federal funding for this disaster with the exception of 100 percent Federal funding for 15 days after Hurricane Sandy struck for emergency power restoration and emergency public transportation. The Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Act (§401), requires that all requests for a Presidential declaration that a major disaster exists shall be made by the Governor of the affected State. The Governor makes a request through the regional FEMA office. Based on the Governor's request, the President may declare that a major disaster or emergency exists, thus activating an array of Federal programs to assist in the response and recovery effort. FEMA provided an effective and efficient response to the damages caused by Hurricane Sandy. In its response, FEMA proactively prepared for Hurricane Sandy, overcame operational and staffing challenges, overcame resource shortfalls, used a variety of sourcing mechanisms, and effectively coordinated response activities. As of April 2, 2013, FEMA had- 1) Obligated $459 million in mission assignments to 39 Federal agencies to support FEMA and the State of New York with resources, such as emergency medical personnel and assistance with debris clearance and power restoration; 2) Registered more than 270,000 Individual Assistance applicants; and 3) Obligated more than $806 million for Public Assistance. In evaluating FEMA's initial response to this disaster, we focused on answering the following questions: 1. What activities did FEMA perform before the major disaster declaration? 2. What were the most pressing challenges FEMA faced in this disaster? 3. What were the most significant resource shortfalls? 4. How did FEMA make disaster sourcing decisions? 5. How well did FEMA coordinate its activities?
FEMA's preparedness for the next catastrophic disaster : an update by United States( Book )
3 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
In March 2008, we issued a report in response to a request from the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform to perform a high-level assessment of the Federal Emergency Management Agency's preparedness to handle a future disaster. We reported that the agency had made progress in all of the key preparedness areas we reviewed, although in some areas the progress was modest or limited. The primary objective of this assessment was to determine the progress the Federal Emergency Management Agency has made in the key preparedness areas. We reviewed pertinent reports, including those of our office and the Government Accountability Office, as well as congressional testimony. We interviewed agency officials and evaluated documents provided by them. Within each of the ten key preparedness areas, we collaborated with agency officials to confirm that the critical components identified in 2008 were still relevant or to update the critical components. We assessed the agency's progress in each of the areas against a four-tiered scale: substantial progress, moderate progress, modest progress, and limited or no progress
