FEMA is clueless!

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) -- The Bush administration is committing resources including helicopters and fire-fighting aircraft to the regions in California affected by devastating wildfires, government agencies said Tuesday.
President Bush declared a federal emergency for California on Monday, making seven counties eligible for federal aid.
Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff and FEMA Administrator David Paulison are flying to southern California on Tuesday to visit impacted areas.
"We haven't waited for paperwork to be signed but we have been moving cots, blankets, other supplies into the area of San Diego" to bolster sheltering efforts, Chertoff said before departing Tuesday. He also said aircraft has been mobilized to fight fires when winds die down.
"We have the money flowing, we have assets going there," White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said Tuesday on MSNBC.
A White House spokesman said there's no dollar figure yet since the situation is changing by the moment.
However, various arms of government are sending help to the affected areas, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
The Pentagon is sending fire-fighting C-130 aircraft to the state and the National Guard has deployed helicopters with crews to help fight fires in Los Alamitos and Mather, Calif. One heavy mobility tactical truck has been deployed to Los Alamitos to conduct refueling operations, according to FEMA.
FEMA has also approved eight fire-management grants, which pay for 75% of the state's eligible fire-fighting costs. Eligible costs include costs for equipment, supplies and work like shelters and traffic control.
FEMA is part of the Department of Homeland Security.
Also Tuesday, federal banking regulators said national bank offices affected by the wildfires may close at their discretion
