Letter from IACP President Ronald C. Ruecker </br>concerning First Responder Community Deployment
Dear IACP Membership:
The attached memorandum from R. David Paulison, Administrator; the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) requests that first responders work through their State emergency management office and the Emergency Management Assistance Compact to ensure that the deployment of first responders meets the specific needs and requests of the affected state.
The I.A.C.P. membership has a long history of responding to the needs of American cities in times of natural disaster. The I.A.C.P. encourages all members and their agencies to coordinate their responses to hurricane Gustav as through their State emergency management office and the Emergency Management Assistance Compact as recommended by FEMA Administrator Paulison.
Ronald C. Ruecker
