On the occasion of its 40th anniversary, FEMA has released a podcast taking listeners on a trip through the agency’s timeline, highlighting key historical events, landmark legislation, and the “not so often told story” of how it got where it is today. The podcast includes interviews with FEMA employees, one of whom has been with the agency since its inception, as well as discussions about FEMA’s responses to major disasters, such as Hurricane Andrew in 1992, the Northridge earthquake in 1994, the 9/11 attacks of 2001, and Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Despite the magnitude of these events, the podcast reminds listeners that these are just some of the incidents FEMA has responded to. Since its inception, FEMA has been involved with the responses to over 3,000 emergencies and major disaster declarations. Access the podcast at FEMA.
