Craig Fugate, FEMA Administrator

As Administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Mr. Fugate has
led the agency in responding to numerous disasters including the recent
tornado outbreaks in the South. Administrator Fugate has also completely
revamped the way the agency looks at the disability community and is pushing
for inclusion into the overall plan rather than creating separate plans or
annexes.
