Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA): Additional Planning and Data Collection Could Help Improve Workforce Management Efforts
Chris P. Currie (au)
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) relies on both permanent and temporary disaster-related employees to respond to presidentially declared disasters. FEMAńˇ╗s total workforce increased by about 144% -- 7,558 to 18,229 employees -- from FY 2005 to Sept. 2014. In 2012, FEMA deployed two new components to its disaster response workforce -- the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) Surge Capacity Force and the FEMA Corps. However, an after-action report from Hurricane Sandy indicated that FEMA exhausted its staff resources during its response and that it faced additional challenges related to its disaster response workforce. This report addresses (1) FEMAńˇ╗s actions to address long-standing workforce challenges; and (2) the challenges that have affected FEMAńˇ╗s new disaster workforce components. Table and figures. This is a print on demand report.
