FEMA Administrator Asks States to Help Other States with COVID-19 Response

This is the fourth letter sent by Pete Gaynor.

by Eric Holdeman / July 20, 2020

Peter Gaynor, FEMA administrator, has sent the fourth in a series of letters that he wants every emergency manager in the nation to receive.

In this missive, Administrator Gaynor's Letter to State Directors and Agencies, he is imploring states to come to the aid of other states that are currently experiencing the worst impacts of the coronavirus.

It is the spirit of mutual aid that is enabled by the Emergency Management Assistance Compact that provides a mechanism for the sharing of goods, materials, equipment and personnel. 

At this point we don't know when the coronavirus will be done with us, or the "new normal" appears and we adjust to it being present in our lives. While it has been hard to project what will happen and when, I fear that all the respected epidemiologists are concerned what will happen in the fall of 2020 when flu season returns again, and we are still dealing with COVID-19. 

It ain't over yet! My wife and I just finally started watching Game of Thrones. "Winter is coming!"
