FEMA graphic still available

[ #27285 ]
At http://www.fema.gov/graphics/about/what.gif, you'll find the graphic that Jon Stewart described as being on the site as recently as a few weeks ago. It shows how FEMA's mission starts with a disaster, which leads to a response, recovery, mitigation, risk reduction, prevention, and preparedness, which leads (at their own admission), right back to disaster. Wow.

They removed the link and text, but they haven't removed the image from the website yet. Chuckle while you can.

  • which leads (at their own admission), right back to disaster.

    Yeah, particularly with Brownie's sad performance this is funny out of context.

    However, I don't think anyone is saying the Gov't shouldn't use feedback from what worked and didn't work in the last disaster in preparation for the next disasters. And given the wide variety and finite nature of the taxation power, I trust no one is claiming that an adequate government could prevent all disaster. We may be able to limit the impact... but prevent,
