FEMA's Role in the Recovery

Administrator of relief agency pledges long-term commitment

By Emily Shao | March 4 , 2013

Last week, Kid Reporter Emily Shao interviewed W. Craig Fugate, the Administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The focus of their conversation was National Severe Weather Preparedness Week, but they also talked about the ongoing recovery after Hurricane Sandy.

In the interview, Administrator Fugate explained how FEMA is working with federal and state agencies to help victims in hard-hit areas recover. He also promised to those victims that FEMA would be there to help them for as long as it takes.
