"We Need a Level of Coordination and Efficiency in Disaster Recovery Never Seen Before..."
Gerome Hatfield - FEMA Regional Manager
Anthropologist Susan Hoffman author of the book "Disaster upon Disaster" points out that all too often sympathy and helpfulness become political. This should not be the case when it comes to helping people rebuild their homes and their lives after natural and manmade disasters. As a part of our mission, we reach out to Federal, State, and local Emergency Managers, Non-profit relief organizations, and caseworkers.
To those who are PREPARING, NAVIGATING, and RECOVERING from any natural or man-made disaster. Disaster Central is your community partner. We are dedicated to your equal, transparent, and consistent treatment in your recovery efforts. All too often, disaster survivors must endure extreme delays and unequal treatment among helping agencies.
