MEMORANDUM FOR: All FEMA Employees
FROM: Craig Fugate, Administrator
SUBJECT: Holiday Message
This holiday season, I express my heartfelt appreciation for the incredible work and dedication you continue to put forth on behalf of disaster survivors across our country. Along with Deputy Administrator Serino, we wish you a joyous holiday season and a happy and healthy new year.
You’ve all worked incredibly hard over this past year including our response to Hurricanes Sandy and Isaac, and for this I am proud to work side-by-side with you. The work we do continues and some of you find yourselves away from home this holiday season. As I emphasized at Thanksgiving, please know that the contributions to our mission touch people’s lives in so many significant ways. I know the appreciation I have for your dedication to the work you do is felt so much more by the survivors of the storms, and for this you should take pride.
To you and your families, have a joyous and healthy holiday season.
