In 1979, President Carter issued executive order 12127, which merged a lot of prior organizations meant to aid in the case of natural disasters into one federal group – FEMA.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency has been around for almost 3 decades now, helping those afflicted by natural disasters and evacuation measures. The agency takes steps to ensure the country’s preparedness for any kind of disaster relief, not just limited to hurricanes. Stock piles of food, water, and medical supplies can either be flown in or air dropped in affected areas, and FEMA does its best to educate people who live in at-risk areas for natural disasters. The agency received a lot of scrutiny for its apparent slow reaction to the Hurricane Katrina disaster in the southern gulf area, leaving many homeless and decimated for a lengthy time before the National Guard showed up to help.
