FEMA administrator promotes preparation for next disaster | The National Press Club

People don’t want to think about bad things so they don’t prepare for emergencies, Craig Fugate, administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, told a National Press Club Newsmaker audience May 4.

The problem with not preparing is that “you don’t get to pick the next disaster. You don’t always know when it is going to happen. It could be happening right now [and] we just don’t know it,” Fugate said.
