The head of the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency, Brock Long, said he would resign on Wednesday, after overseeing the government's response to a string of record-breaking hurricanes, wildfires and other natural disasters. "I leave knowing the Agency is in good hands".
In a statement, Long said FEMA had provided assistance on "more than 200 declared disasters" and thanked President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, whom he said "have been extremely supportive of me, the FEMA workforce and our mission".
"It has been a great honor to serve our country as FEMA Administrator for the past two years".
"While this has been the opportunity of the lifetime, it is time for me to go home to my family - my handsome wife and two incredible boys", Long's statement explained "Upon my departure, Mr. Peter Gaynor, will serve as Acting FEMA administrator". Long almost resigned the week after Hurricane Florence struck the Carolinas last September, but Nielsen convinced him to stay, according to a separate Post report.
Hurricane Maria killed almost 3,000 people in Puerto Rico and left the island's 3.7 million residents without electricity.
Two months after Long took over FEMA in June 2017, Hurricane Harvey dumped a record amount of rainfall in Texas and Hurricane Irma became one of the strongest Atlantic hurricanes on record before slamming into Florida. Wildfires took their toll on the West during that time, including the November 2018 Camp Fire, which was both the deadliest and most devastating in California history.
Deputy FEMA Administrator Peter Gaynor will serve as acting administrator when Long departs.
Long had been investigated by the Department of Homeland Security's internal watchdog a year ago over allegations that he inappropriately used government vehicles to travel to his home in North Carolina.
