Why is FEMA discussing “child relocation” programs?

[ How touching of FEMA to “suffer the little children” in the days of chaos envisioned ahead… It gives me warm tingles all over to know that the welfare of children will be in the hands of paramilitary bureaucrats. ]

FEMA Announces Creation Of Children’s Working Group

Release Date: August 4, 2009
Release Number: HQ-09-094

WASHINGTON, D.C. — While testifying before the Senate Ad Hoc Subcommittee on Disaster Recovery today, the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Administrator Craig Fugate announced the creation of a “Children’s Working Group.”

The working group will allow FEMA and its partners to explore and implement planning and response strategies specific to children throughout the agency and ensure that during a disaster the unique needs of children are not only considered, but fully integrated into how FEMA administers this support to states and the public.

“It is time for special needs populations, whether children or any other segment of our communities who have traditionally been underserved, to be more fully and consistently integrated into preparedness and planning efforts at every level of government,” Administer Fugate said. “Children are a part of every community. We must understand and address their needs from the outset, recognizing that they are not simply small adults. That means not putting the considerations specific to children in a separate box, but incorporating them into our planning on the front end.”
