FEMA’s Schrader: Pandemic Will Overwhelm Infrastructure

”If a pandemic were to occur, it would put tremendous strain on our nation’s infrastructure, and it’s going to overwhelm our health infrastructure, just no question about it,” said Dennis Schrader, deputy administrator of FEMA’s National Preparedness Directorate, delivering the Emergency Preparedness Keynote today at the National Safety Council’s Congress & Expo in Chicago. He said the “new FEMA” is still a work in progress but is already more responsive and less bureaucratic.

”It’s very naïve to think we in Washington can solve the infrastructure problem,” he said. “At the end of the day, it’s going to boil down to community--communities helping other communities. We need a culture of common sense. . . . Much has been done already, but there’s still a lot of work to do.”
