Send FEMA to Train In Guatemala

After the Puerto Rico hurricane disasters were somewhat slow to experience FEMA relief (a deserved criticism or not isn’t entirely certain) it became plain that FEMA could use occasional field training exercises for management and support teams. The volcanic eruption and disaster in Guatemala is a good opportunity for the FEMA team to establish the ad hoc political and equipment interactions required for swift reaction time in an effective way to relief victims.

Though its not part of the United States, the relief of volcano victims and the liaison and logistics required could serve as a test of the Federal Emergency Management Administration that isn’t just on paper.
