Emergency Management: Actions to Implement Select Provisions of the Post-Katrina Emergency Act: Congressional Testimony
William O. Jenkins, Jr.
Hurricane Katrina (HK) severely tested disaster mgmt. at the fed., state, and local levels and revealed weaknesses in the basic elements -- leadership, capabilities, and accountability -- of preparing for, responding to, and recovering from disasters. In October 2006, Congress enacted the Post-Katrina Act to address issues identified in the response to HK. In Nov. 2008, the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) and FEMA had preliminary efforts under way to address most of the provisions, but also identified areas that required further action. This statement discusses basic elements related to: (1) findings from the response to HK; (2) provisions of the Post-Katrina Act; and (3) actions DHS and FEMA have taken to implement these provisions.
