Thread Name: BS: Faith Based Disaster Relief! Ta Da!!!
Subject: RE: BS: Faith Based Disaster Relief! Ta Da!!!
I know Peter. When I found that out last week from my nephew, I simply could not believe it. 'Stunning' is the word I used as well.
And it isn't like nobody knew
what needed to be done or funded. While this report specifically addresses terrorism, what we are actually seeing this week on the Gulf Coast is a test of emergency responders system in action. How depressing is that? The name of the 2003 study is "Emergency Responders: Drastically Underfunded Dangerously Unprepared" and it can be purchased used at Amazon for $6.48.
Next, I suppose we'll hear from our Florida horse trader at FEMA, and Skeletor at Homeland they didn't get their copies of the report.
This link is to the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians site. It's the national org my nephew is trying to work through to get into the disaster area.
Perhaps he failed the religious litmus test.
