General Preparedness


As a member of the emergency management arena for over 25 years, I have just one suggestion. Get rid of the Homeland Security Exercise Evaluation Program. It is the epitome of bureaucracy. It may work well for very large urban areas with large staff, but it certainly does not work well in the smaller communities where staff is limited. It does nothing to help a community prepare for disasters, but it does create a huge volume of paperwork, most of which has no value.


I apologize for my bluntness, but it is something that just creates a large amount of heartburn, when I know it's just a paperwork drill.
