As Administrator Fugate pointed out yesterday on this blog, FEMA Deputy Administrator for Protection and National Preparedness, Tim Manning was in Christchurch, New Zealand when the earthquake struck two days ago.
Specifically, Deputy Administrator Manning was about to board a plane when the earthquake struck. Check out Ed O’Keefe’s story from the Washington Post to see Tim's answers to some pointed questions, including:
- What did you do right after the quake?
- What’s the first thing a person should do immediately after an earthquake?
- What should people do to prevent potential quake damage to their home or office?
- How much longer will you be there?
