There is too much worry over who is going to pay for responses to a disaster. Currently, there are Urban Search & Rescue teams that can respond while the the lines of response and responsibility are clear enough that arguing over the bill obfuscates the problem.
Local mayors should put pressure on their governors to create clear lines of communication so that everyone knows who to talk to during an emergency, who will provide the financial assistance, and how that assistance will manifest itself.
