On Presidents Visiting Disasters


» More articles


Monday, August 28, 2017

Just as an FYI, any time a US president visits a disaster - any president, and any disaster - it is usually not helpful to the disaster itself. The media makes it seem helpful and critical every time. In reality, disaster air operations are heavily impacted for the length of the visit. Law enforcement is impacted due to POTUS security. Local, federal, and state government officials and staff must prep for the visits and take time away from response for them. To be sure, some positive action from the visits can occur and those things are hard to measure. However, impacts on the response are rarely acknowledged - by the media or by the president.
