why blame FEMA

FEMA director Brown's job is to coordinate relief agencys like Redcross, Salvation Army, churches ect, If Governor Blanco won't allow these agencys in , what's FEMA to do. Why blame FEMA for what the state does by keeping out agencys to help New Orleans survivors? Governor Blanco STILL hasn't released control of the national guard to the federal Gouv.

You want to know the difference in Florida's relief handled well by FEMA priviously. The state Gouvernor ( Jeb Bush ) released control to the Feds right away. FEMA could do their job.

Hurricane Katrina: Why is the Red Cross not in New Orleans?


Quote:
Acess to New Orleans is controlled by the National Guard and local authorities and while we are in constant contact with them, we simply cannot enter New Orleans against their orders.

The state Homeland Security Department had requested--and continues to request--that the American Red Cross not come back into New Orleans following the hurricane. Our presence would keep people from evacuating and encourage others to come into the city.

The Red Cross has been meeting the needs of thousands of New Orleans residents in some 90 shelters throughout the state of Louisiana and elsewhere since before landfall. All told, the Red Cross is today operating 149 shelters for almost 93,000 residents.

The Red Cross shares the nationís anguish over the worsening situation inside the city. We will continue to work under the direction of the military, state and local authorities and to focus all our efforts on our lifesaving mission of feeding and sheltering.

The Red Cross does not conduct search and rescue operations. We are an organization of civilian volunteers and cannot get relief aid into any location until the local authorities say it is safe and provide us with security and access.

The original plan was to evacuate all the residents of New Orleans to safe places outside the city. With the hurricane bearing down, the city government decided to open a shelter of last resort in the Superdome downtown. We applaud this decision and believe it saved a significant number of lives.

As the remaining people are evacuated from New Orleans, the most appropriate role for the Red Cross is to provide a safe place for people to stay and to see that their emergency needs are met. We are fully staffed and equipped to handle these individuals once they are evacuated.
good article from DOD
http://www.dod.mil/transcripts/2005/...0903-3850.html

General Blum :Lieutenant General H Steven Blum serves as Chief, National Guard Bureau, Arlington, Va. As Chief, he is the senior uniformed National Guard officer responsible for formulating, developing and coordinating all policies, programs and plans affecting more than half a million Army and Air National Guard personnel.

Quote:
The real issue, particularly in New Orleans, is that no one anticipated the disintegration or the erosion of the civilian police force in New Orleans. Once that assessment was made, that the normal 1500 man police force in New Orleans was substantially degraded, which contributed obviously to less police presence and less police capability, then the requirement became obvious and that's when we started flowing military police into the theater.
Coast guard report Aug 29th
http://www.uscgstormwatch.com/extern...cumentID=82214

Quote:
ST. LOUIS -- The Coast Guardís current emphasis is the safety and security of people in the areas impacted by Hurricane Katrina, and is working closely with federal, state and local partners on that goal. Coast Guard air and boat crews have assisted in the rescue of 1,259 people, and they are continuing to respond to distress calls.

The Coast Guard is working with FEMA, and is delivering relief supplies aboard its C-130 cargo planes.

There are approximately 4,000 Coast Guardsmen currently in the area working on response and recovery, as well as 15 cutters, 37 airplanes and rescue helicopters, 63 small boats, three maritime safety and security teams, three oil and hazardous material response teams and five aid to navigation teams

It was on 20/20 last night, and because it is the easy thing to do is why to blame them.
