Discuss how national disasters could be better handled by first responders, and then the federal government. Hurricane Katrina was initially the failure of the first responders and then the federal government. What technology was available to these responders? Make sure to include Emergency Operations Centers (EOC) and their relationship to first response, and follow on actions. Discuss how your city and state are prepared for an emergency and compare to the failings of the City of New Orleans and the state of Louisiana to correctly respond as first responders prior to and during Hurricane Katrina. Review the Posse Comitatus Act and did that act apply to Hurricane Katrina and FEMA's delayed response? Please remember that the federal government and FEMA are not usually the first responders to a state or city based emergency.
This is what I'm supposed to research for discussion this week. My brain is not yet fully awake, and I see the words, I read them 4 different times, but my brain isn't connecting to it I guess. This is what happens when you pull all nighters and go to bed at 5 am and wake up at 9 am.Answer Question
