The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is working 121 major disasters. The pandemic has caused almost half of them. Emergencies like ransomware attacks and COVID vaccine distributions on top of prepping for hurricane and wildfire season all fall to FEMA Administrator Deanne Criswell, confirmed by the Senate on April 22.

  • Criswell said her agency works with the private sector to manage supply chain in response to the pandemic and has expanded upon the relationship to learn.
  • FEMA is providing COVID-related support to all states and territories in addition to supporting recovery efforts for disasters from the past few years, including wildfires, heavy rains and ice storms, said Criswell.
  • Criswell said year-round events requiring support are starting to replace cyclical disaster seasons.
