FEMA - An Unbelievable Bureaucracy
I have been a big supporter of FEMA since the disaster in New Orleans, but while I was listening to Ann Coulter on the Sean Hannity radio show today, she mentioned a news report on NBC5.com that discussed FEMA requiring 700 volunteer firemen, including Indiana firefighters Bill Lundy and Joe Calhoun, take an 8 hour course on sexual harassment and equal opportunity employment procedures before they would be allowed to help.
Lundy and Calhoun's first task was an eight-hour course on sexual harassment and equal opportunity employment procedures, Rogers reported. Neither firefighter would be involved in technical rescues of trapped people or any of their other specialties.
If this is the type of petty, shortsighted bureaucracy that pervades FEMA, the whole agency should be overhauled.
