NJ Praised by FEMA for Sandy Response

A new federal report finds New Jersey’s state government cleared the way for the Federal Emergency Management Agency to get to work quickly as Superstorm Sandy struck.

A report made public Tuesday by the Homeland Security Department’s Office of the Inspector General says New Jersey had office space ready for the federal agency by the time the storm made landfall last October.

That spared the federal government having to line up field offices before getting to their substantive work.

The report praises FEMA for its response to the storm, saying it overcame problems with staff members being sent from elsewhere without the needed qualifications.
