    FEMA Tweets Sex Hotline Number To Floridians Devastated By Irma



    Florida residents seeking assistance in the wake of Hurricane Irma were offered a different kind of relief after phoning a number shared by FEMA on social media.

    In a tweet screen-grabbed by Consumerist, Federal Emergency Management Agency Region 4 urged those seeking disaster relief following the record-breaking storm to call 1-800-ROOF-BLU to connect with “Operation Blue Roof” — a program started to help homeowners fix their damaged roofs.

    Those who actually phoned the number however, were instead met with an automated message welcoming them to “America’s hottest talk line,” complete with “hot ladies” for men to speak with.

    FEMA deleted the tweet shortly after it was posted, but not before social media users pointed out their error.

    For those seeking assistance in fixing their roofs, the correct number for “Operation Blue Roof” isn’t a 1-800 number, but rather 1-888-ROOF-BLU.

    At what point can we expect the fuckwhits at FEMA to stop fucking around and behave like adults, on whom Americans depend to survive disasters?

    Is there ever going to be any accountability for the SHABBY performance of this agency?

    Can anyone prove FEMA was not offering blow jobs to hurricane victims?

    Oh jeez, it was a simple mistake corrected very quickly.

    Aren't you one of those that lets the NYTs of the hook for their mistakes because they correct it?
    Thanks from John T Ford

    We spend BILLIONS on "disaster preparedness" and "disaster relief", and I bet not one dollar in ten actually benefits victims. The waste and corruption at FEMA is astounding.



    No president attempts to actually reform FEMA and reduce this waste and corruption, because each president has friends who are profiting from it, wildly. And the federal corruption stains the states' own disaster relief efforts, as well as nonprofits, the insurance industry and the construction industry.

    It doesn't just waste money; it also costs lives. And it cannot continue to grow at the present exponential rate. FEMA corruption does not simply disrupt lives and communities immediately after a disaster. It does so before, as the local and state governments strive to prepare in cooperation with the feds, and it does so long after. New Orleans is STILL suffering as much from FEMA-related corruption as from the impact of Katrina itself, which was so bad it resembled the anarchy of a Gold Rush boom town.

    Every time a disaster strikes and FEMA fucks us over again, we say "well, let's address that after the crisis has passed." and then we, the general public, lose interest in reforming FEMA once the disaster-ridden area is off the front page. FEMA-inspired corruption is far more than inflated invoices and embezzlement of funds. It is crappy construction, a general sense of lawlessness, a distortion to the American housing market, and worst of all, a blight of racist and classist inequity on a community that cannot be removed within the same century.

    IMO, corruption at FEMA is as dangerous to the US's national security as corruption at the IRS would be, on this scale.

    This is the story of corruption and contempt.

    That was a thoughtful gesture on their part. Sex is an excellent therapy for stress relief.

    Yes, it was a mistake. But it was typical of the culture at FEMA; actually helping disaster victims is an afterthought.

    You think they did not have that tollfree number reserved as part of their disaster preparedness plan?

    There is very little care and concern for ordinary Americans in distress at FEMA.
