DHS prepares for hurricane season

Filed under: Preparedness and Response — by Christian Beckner on May 24, 2006

Sec. Chertoff gave a press conference yesterday to discuss the federal government’s preparations for hurricane season; the transcript is here. I have no doubt that we are better prepared as we head into the next hurricane season, although it’s difficult to make sense of the statistical measures provided in the briefing. The question that I keep chewing over, however, is this: what other areas of homeland security has the senior leadership of the Department been neglecting because of its laser-like focus on hurricane preparedness and response?
