Federal Emergency Management Agency Response in Rural Appalachia: A Tale of Miscommunication, Unrealistic Expectations, and "Hurt, Hurt, Hurt"

Federal Emergency Management Agency Response in Rural Appalachia: A Tale of Miscommunication, Unrealistic Expectations, and "Hurt, Hurt, Hurt"

Nursing Clinics of North America 51(4): 599-611

In spring of 2012, rural southeastern Kentucky was impacted by torrential storms and flooding that activated federal disaster response through Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). This qualitative research study examines the experience of community members affected by the Kentucky floods of 2012 (N=9) and describes their interactions with FEMA representatives, in their own voice, thereby giving insight into gaps in rural disaster response. The principal investigator spent 6 weeks living in the community and conducted open-ended interviews. Narratives were transcribed verbatim and analyzed using a phenomenological approach.
