Statement from Congressman Dan Donovan on Confirmation of Brock Long as FEMA Administrator
“Congratulations to Brock Long on being confirmed as the next Administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). FEMA has made significant improvements to strengthen its emergency response capabilities over the past decade, and I hope Administrator Long will continue to build on this momentum. New Yorkers know firsthand the importance of making our communities more resilient – whether it’s strengthening our anti-terror preparedness, improving storm resiliency capabilities, or addressing flood insurance affordability, there is still a lot of work to be done. I look forward to working with Administrator Long to build on FEMA’s successes, as well as address critical gaps and vulnerabilities that remain.”
