FEMA to focus on children's needs

BY: Eric Holdeman | August 6, 2009

Eileen Sullivan may be a vanishing breed of reporter. She writes for AP and has had the Emergency Management and Homeland Security beat for a number of years. She has done a nice job about learning and covering our profession. It is a bit questionable as to how much longer that can be sustained with the pressure on major media organizations to cut costs. Fewer beats, more generalists--is my expectation.

With that side commentary, see FEMA to focus on children's needs during disasters which talks to Craig Fugate's emphasis on children in disasters. This is the second item I've seen on the topic in recent weeks.

Watch for an interview I'm doing with one of the commissioners from the Commission on Children and Disasters that will be coming soon (I think) to the on-line pages of Emergency Management Magazine.
