Disaster Zone Podcast: Defund Emergency Management

Say, What?

Trust me, it is not just click bait to get you to listen to the current Disaster Zone Podcast: Defunding Emergency Management

This podcast is a commentary from myself on the topic of who is supposed to fund the emergency management function? And, how we have skewed the system to become one that has the federal government stepping in to provide the funding for one of the most basic of state and local government functions.

Will anything change, certainly not—but, I'm calling it out here for what it is.
