Fugate FEMA

March 5th, 2009 by flanews

President Barack Obama is nominating Craig Fugate, Floridas Director of Emergency Management to take over FEMA. Fugate has been running Floridas Division of Emergency Management since 2001 and helped the state through some of the worst storms in recent history. Governor Charlie Crist says having Fugate in Washington is good for the state.

It shows great wisdom by the new administration to pick someone of this quality and I think its going to work to Floridas benefit as well. I mean imagine, I hope we dont, but if we have a hurricane or other natural catastrophe having Craig Fugate at the head of it for our country is good for Florida and good for America, said Crist.

Fugates nomination is being praised by the International Association of Emergency Managers.
