Under fire for its botched handling of Hurricane Katrina, the Department of Homeland Security said Wednesday that there is no specific federal strategy for responding to a catastrophic earthquake in California, although it will review the state’s own plan.
Yeah, cause that whole “Katrina thing” worked out really well, didn’t it boys?
“(FEMA and DHS) take very seriously the need for catastrophic planning in California, as well as throughout the nation,” Chertoff wrote.
Is that why no one MADE A PLAN? Who are these jokers?
The article goes on to talk about how the state has way more of a handle on things, but this whole “Plan? Who needs a plan?” thing from the feds really bothers me.
In other news I helped build a pretty comprehensive disaster-preparedness plan including all manner of supplies, generators and what not with some family out in the valley. I know we’ve talked about it before and will continue to do so here at blogging.la but being prepared for such things is never a bad idea. Especially when we’re being constantly reassured that any help from the federal government will be days away, at least.
