And, instead join FEMA as they attempt to reinvent themselves. According to published reports this morning,
Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff will announce wide-ranging changes to the nation's embattled disaster-response agency on the heels of a House report blaming government-wide ineptitude for mishandling Hurricane Katrina relief.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency reforms that Chertoff will unveil Monday range from a full-time response force of 1,500 new employees to establishing a more reliable system to report on disasters as they unfold.

That's alot of eyes on the ground; they'll be tripping over each other.
