Obama to Storm Victims: Call FEMA

by Categorized: President Obama, Sandy Date:

President Obama, in remarks at FEMA headquarters yesterday, said folks shouldn\’t hesitate to call FEMA:

The other thing I emphasized, though, is that it is much easier for us to respond if we know what these problems are out in these areas, so if everybody can help publicize the number 800-621-FEMA — 800-621-FEMA — then individuals can register with FEMA and immediately get the assistance that they need.

… And so the more that folks in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut understand that there are a lot of resources available for them, not just with respect to housing, but also with respect to childcare, medicine, a whole range of support, then we want to make sure that they contact us as soon as possible if they\’re in distress because help is available.

    I called FEMA– what a joke. Those who rely on Government are over expecting. Obama has done photo opportunities and lousy leadership. Bush did a better job with Katrina than Obama has with Sandy.
