The Head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency is thanking Governor Charlie Crist for the states response to Tropical Storm Fay.

Outgoing FEMA Administrator David Paulison met with Crist at the state capitol Thursday. FEMA has spent weeks preparing for President-Elect Barack Obamas inauguration ceremony. Three million people are expected to attend the swearing in ceremony. Paulison said FEMA will work with the FBI and the Secret Service to keep the crowd safe.

We will make sure that weve go our command post up and running. We would handle the consequence management side if anything should happen. Were working with the Department of Health and Human Services to make sure we have plenty medical in place, said Paulison.

The inauguration is Paulisons last task. He will step down from FEMA on Tuesday after the inauguration.
