Research Project suggestion to classic
dynamic failure of FEMA programs
The governors of several states commissioned a study about 30 years on
the problem of "classic dymanic failure" and a possible solution was
created which is described in the appended file.

Possible Solution To Classic Dymanic
Failure to FEMA and Stafford Act Programs 2018
By Chris Walters Retired Field Researcher
In the 1980's several Governors including Florida Governor Lawton Childes and Governor Pete Wilson of California
believed that FEMA responses to disasters were often slower than needed and commissioned an interstate study project
and advocated the Interstate Compacts for Mutual Assistance. The Stafford Act was created in the cold war Era as a
response to nuclear war and based on a central chain of command structure used by the military. Review of Incidents
Classic Dynamic Failure
In a major disaster communications systems are often disabled and the first responders are not able to
assume their roles because they are engaged in surviving the event. The recent comments by Washington
Major General Bret Daugherty was that the expected earthquake in Washington State would drop ever highway overpass
in western Washington; and other reports project loss of most electrical and communications capabilities.
Creation of Auxiliary Communications or Stand Alone System
(Outline of 2016 Version County Data Not Online )
The installation of all of Washington States vital information with each county emergency management office means that no
matter how ever sever the communications outage is everyone can still see everyone else and already has access to vital
emergency management plans needed to effect work. The entire program is 767 MB and can easily be transmitted by FEMA to
states such as Texas, NY, or California for instance and give these folks instant access to information they need to respond.
How to Create and Install A National System On The Cheap If they federal government or FEMA wishes to create and
install this system nationally, I could hold a 2 week class in a FEMA facility for 2 members of each states National Guard.
By training about 20 persons at a time; they would learn how to create and install the system in their own states and
update the data as needed. Since I receive retirement my services are probono but might need access to guest housing... and a soft chair for my damaged hip

Is FEMA 10 Adequately prepared for
earthquake which could kill 2 million?
Please pardon the intrusion there was some question of a major earth quake
in Pacific NW and the FEMA prepartions for an event which could kill
up to 2 million persons in worth case scenerio:
Given the extraordinary nature of the projected event a question
might be asked if the US Navy has been adequate planning for
response and recovery since the earthquake is expected to
"drop every overpass in Eastern Washington" according to
National Guard General Daugherty.
Many Thanks Chris Walters
