On July 29, FEMA rolled out a brand-new website design and content.
We have all been caught in "website hell" where we know the information has to be there, but you can't find it. Answering the call to simplify FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency has a totally redesigned website. See the blog introducing the redesign, Introducing the New FEMA.gov.
One thing that will stand out is the new effort to personalize FEMA by highlighting FEMA staffers who are working to make the USA, and where you live, a safer and disaster-resilient community. FEMA has around 20,000 total employees, considering all the different classes of workers. While by federal department standards, it is chump change in numbers, the individual faces and people can get caught in the mix. I always feel bad when I know that there are dedicated public servants who get tarred with the rest of the gang over some mistake made or historic disaster blunder, e.g., Hurricane Katrina.
