WASHINGTON – Any questions regarding a particular investigation should be directed to Department of Homeland Security’s Office of the Inspector General (DHS OIG). FEMA fully cooperates with all investigations conducted by the DHS OIG.

Administrator Long and the FEMA workforce are focused on preparing for, responding to, and recovering from Hurricane Florence and other active tropical systems.

Having worked directly with him for over a year, I know Administrator Long to be an experienced and respected emergency manager. Since his confirmation, the Administrator quickly earned the respect of the entire emergency management community, many in Congress and, most importantly, the FEMA workforce, during the most historic and challenging time in the agency’s history. He is known for his passion to help disaster survivors in their time of greatest need.



FEMA's mission is to help people prepare before, during and after disasters.
