FEMA-related dramatic tales
September 24, 2008 2:54 PM   Subscribe

Please recommend some interesting media (specifically articles, books, movies, documentaries, mini-series) about the people working for FEMA.

It can be about the search-and-rescue teams, the Washington corruption angle, the legal or environmental aspects, whatever-- I just want to be captivated by dramatic issues involving the world of Federal Emergency Management.

Just to clarify-- I'm not looking for stories of the victims of natural disasters, but the stories of the people who are attempting to HELP the victims, even on a bureaucratic, Washington DC level. Bonus points for articles/other media that focus on any interesting people working for them! (Hero-types and villain-types are good too.)

Frontline did an episode on FEMA's response to Katrina. It also had some history on FEMA in general (see sidebar). There was also an article in the NYTimes about a year ago that followed around a FEMA worker, but I can't seem to find it (but in searching the Times' website, I found a reference to this thread!).
