Do you think FEMA could handle an emergency if it happened here?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on September 13, 2005
“Probably not, but it seems like there aren’t many emergencies that are likely to happen in Kansas.”
“I’m sure they could handle it. I think they were overwhelmed with what happened in Louisiana, but I don’t think anyone in crisis thinks that the response is fast enough.”
“Probably not, since they couldn’t handle the emergency that happened in the South. I’m happy to hear the director has stepped down.”
“I guess it would depend on the scale of the emergency. I think they relied too heavily on local authorities to handle the initial response in this case.”
