This is the January 20, 2022 joint hearing on "FEMA: Building a Workforce Prepared and Ready to Respond," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Emergency Preparedness, Response, and Recovery and the Subcommittee on Oversight, Management, and Accountability of the Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of Val Butler Demings: "We are here to discuss the Federal Emergency Management Agency, FEMA, its work force. This topic is incredibly timely given the tornadoes that struck southwest Florida Sunday morning, destroying dozens of homes and leaving thousands without power in Lee and Charlotte Counties. My thoughts are with the families and we are committed to supporting their communities as they recover. I am grateful that FEMA is already on the ground assisting with the damage assessments necessary for Federal assistance. Thank you, Chairman Correa and Ranking Member Meijer for joining Ranking Member Cammack and me for this important hearing." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: W. Craig Fugate, Christopher P. Currie, and Carra S. Sims.
