What is the purpose of FEMA 81-31?
We know FEMA 81-31 is the blueprint for government-driven homelessness in the United States. However, many people don't realize that FEMA is merely another front for the military. To understand why FEMA is not an issue of homelessness (i.e., people are not living in tents and sleeping on the ground), you must first understand that “disaster relief” is actually classified as war and is designed to cause civilian casualties (often referred to as the 9/11 paradox).
When one considers the official justification for FEMA, that it serves “National Security,” one will see that there is almost no mention of national security. On page 10 of FEMA 81-31, we are informed that “Disaster relief is vital to the United States in order to prevent an attack; to recover from an attack; to enhance the continuity of Government; and to prevent a resurgence of international terrorism.” In other words, FEMA serves the “National Security” agenda behind the scenes. In FEMA-speak, this means that it should be used to achieve “National Security” — the same definition that is used for domestic spying programs and the War on Drugs.
Of course, we can all admit that “national security” is a ridiculous excuse, especially with so much “global terrorism” taking place at this very moment. So what is our “national security” agenda? It may be a good idea to begin examining the FEMA disaster management program (hereafter referred to as FEMA 81-31) to see exactly what “disaster relief” is actually meant to accomplish.
FEMA operates in tandem with FEMA Region II (also known as the Federal Emergency Management Agency). FEMA Region II includes 16 states (Alaska, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia) plus Puerto Rico, the United States Virgin Islands, Washington D.C., and Guam. FEMA Region II is responsible for the management of approximately 2.9 million people and is funded at 21.6 billion — a mere fraction of the federal budget. But as you will see below, this relatively small budget is used to create a gigantic surveillance network across society.

Can I create my own FEMA 81-31?
Yes! FEMA 81-31 can be created by a member or by a contractor, not by a government agency. It requires no prior training, special knowledge or special software (although some data may be difficult to transfer). The FEMA program was created for a purpose--to provide support to the private sector during and after a natural disaster, including both a pre-dawn and post-dawn response. All FEMA needs to do is simply provide data about the disaster, the number of people who are expected to attend the event, and the approximate cost. With that information, the private sector can be able to put together a team and start working within an hour or two of the event occurring. And that's it! As long as you follow the FEMA Guidelines, there is no need to know a single word of government code or procedures. A fully trained FEMA agent is available to answer any questions about creating your own disaster. You're probably wondering how to start. The best way to get started on a FEMA emergency plan is to contact your local chapter's disaster team first. The FEMA chapter team can assist you with the creation of your plan, will provide updates of the plan over the phone so that you know how your plan is doing, as well as answer any questions you might have. If you do not receive a reply, then the chapter's Disaster Committee or your Disaster Relief Representative can provide you with information. Remember, FEMA is a federal agency, not a state or local government.
My team is not yet ready to provide support in a disaster, or our organization does not exist yet to provide support for a disaster. Am I going to get fired?
That's possible, but this usually happens after FEMA funds are exhausted. A lot of businesses simply do not have the capability to respond in a disaster. FEMA will never fire an agent for having an unfilled need--they have no authority to do that. Your employer will, however, have an obligation to reimburse the FEMA Agent for the cost of the plan. If the group is nonmember ship, this obligation will probably not be included, though there are a few states that specifically require reimbursement to members of non-profit disaster relief organizations.
What if I make a mistake with my plan? Can I still get paid?
No. The FEMA administrator cannot grant any waiver that would allow an employee to do or not do what is in the plan or not do what is outside the plan.
What should I do with FEMA 81-31 when it’s complete?
Once you have FEMA 81-31 in your possession, it is the first step toward obtaining your insurance. Before you can apply for your full-insurance policy, you will need to make a decision on whether to continue in your current job. If you do decide to seek out another job, you will need to make a new plan for your benefits.
It is highly recommended that you maintain your full-insurance policy until you are satisfied with the amount and quality of coverage you receive. You cannot change your car's policy within a specified period of the initial policy, so if you continue to work in the same company after your full-insurance policy is in place, you will need to get a new policy.
When you go to renew your policy, you will be notified of your new policy coverage options or if insurance companies have changed their policies about coverage during the past year.
How long should I wait to contact my insurance company to renew my policy?
You should contact your insurance company within two business days after you have secured your replacement vehicle/home. Do not wait for an extension of time — contact the company as soon and as soon as you are able to.
FEMA 81-31 does not cover any damage to or loss of your current insurance. If you have an auto or home insurance policy in place, you must file a claim within 28 days before your date of replacement vehicle/home.
You must also continue to maintain coverage for your current home or vehicle until the date of replacement vehicle/home.
Do I have to call at all to file a claim?
No. You may contact your insurance company to file a claim on your own. There is no fee for filing a claim — just ensure that you do it within six months after your coverage expires, so that the proper procedures can begin to replace your vehicle/home. If you have not been able to obtain proper replacement at a reduced rate (typically 300-500 less than your existing policy), it will be your responsibility to pursue these claims on your own. Your insurance company will provide you with an estimate for how long it will take to repair or replace your vehicle/home — please make sure that you are comfortable with the amount of time required to complete the repair/replacement.

2. Write down where you keep important documents like birth certificates and tax forms, etc., and keep them with you.
3. Use the local library and telephone numbers to verify that information.
4. Sign up ahead of time for FEMA pre-authorization and make a list of family, friends and businesses to call if something happens, and they want to be notified.
5. Prepare any financial documents, like an emergency bank account for rent and food.
5. Keep medical supplies at home.
6. Have a plan for your children and grandchildren.
7. Have a basic emergency preparedness kit (water, snacks, non-perishable food, first aid kit, etc.)
If you ever see something strange or suspicious during the disaster, you can call 911.
Please do not go into the street and yell for help without knowing what is going on!
If you are worried about your family and how you will be able to survive a possible disaster, you should not wait to register with FEMA. You should register now. If you do not register before the hurricane strikes, FEMA will not be able to help you. You may be a target for theft; some people are trying to steal people's personal information to sell on the black market to make a quick buck.
What documents do I need to attach to my FEMA 81-31?
We do not know yet. The document may go into the public domain in about two years, because the law requires that the federal government submit an annual declaration of emergencies by June 1 and amend it every year thereafter, or else we'll have a long delay before it appears in the public domain. But the law specifies that when a declaration is released, a “certificate of authorization is provided” along with it.
How much is this going to cost?
500,000 per FEMA document. Of course, there will be cost implications to both releasing the documents and to keeping them available. But if we want transparency, the cost will come from Congress, not FEMA. (And we should thank the legislators who voted to keep this secret.)
I don't live in the U.S. and I don't have a FEMA 81-31 number. How can I help?
Contact your representative and his or her fellow senators and tell them to support this proposed legislation.
What about international agencies helping with rescue efforts?
Good news! A petition on Change.org has attracted over 2,300 signatures with a very encouraging message: “The US government must acknowledge that global warming is the primary cause of the recent devastation in our nations. The Obama administration must acknowledge that climate change is already forcing US states to close schools, cut public services, and shut down industries.
What are the different types of FEMA 81-31?
FEMA 81-31: Evacuated Areas — A FEMA region of a particular county whose residents are being forced from their homes by a natural disaster. When FEMA 81-31 is issued, the Governor of the affected area can issue an evacuation order for specific areas. This order must be posted with county offices and/or the telephone numbers of county offices. County offices will be open for local residents as well as those who have a disaster plan. The order must be valid for thirty (30) days, during which time any additional evacuations are possible.
FEMA 81-32: Evacuated Properties — A FEMA area of a particular county to which properties are being allowed to return to their residents after a natural disaster. The order must be carried out by the Department of Health and Human Services.
FEMA 81-35: Evacuated Areas — A FEMA region covering the entire state of Florida. Evacuated Florida can be designated by a single county. In these situations people who are within a designated area as designated by the Florida Governor, are allowed to return to their homes.
What are the different types of property rights?
Property rights are the right to exclude others from your space and/or use of your home, business, or lands. There is no such thing as a person's property. The land upon which you stand or sit is your property and can be appropriated, and all real property of the State, county, or municipality has to be considered as your property, whether your land is public or private. Property rights are defined by law in Florida as follows:
Land ownership: Property rights arise primarily upon the land or buildings upon the land, both personal and personal-in-fact, whether they are used for residence, business, mining, manufacturing, or any other lawful use.
Property rights arise primarily upon the land or buildings upon the land, both personal and personal-in-fact, whether they are used for residence, business, mining, manufacturing, or any other lawful use. Buildings: Property rights in built structures, also referred to as the abutting property, arise through ownership and use.
Property rights in built structures, also referred to as the abutting property, arise through ownership and use. Personal-in-fact, personal-injury: Ownership of structures rests with and primarily depends upon their occupants.
Ownership of structures rests with and primarily depends upon their occupants.
How many people fill out FEMA 81-31 each year?
Here's the answer: 7,100, an average of 1 in 8 residents.
What does each person who fills out the form do with his or her information? One in 3 fills out the form in the hope of getting a free meal.
Of these 8,100 people, 2,700—or 1 in 6—do not receive one. One in 8 (7,100) hope to receive help from the agency.
In short, FEMA is failing to respond to a serious problem—a program that's already been in existence for more than a quarter of a century. But since the hurricane hit, FEMA's response has been to try as hard as it can to find new programs and policies that will make us all feel better. Instead, FEMA is going in the other direction—leaving millions of Americans and our national government's long-standing response to disasters in the hands of a small band of ideologues and lobbyists.
This is what we can expect from FEMA now, no matter what happens in this upcoming election. But we can help. Let's send a letter to the White House, Congress, and any federal agency asking them to do a better job of responding to disasters in the years to come. It doesn't take long, and it won't cost you a lot of money. Check out the form below. Let's make sure we live in a country of help, not of handouts.
Letter to FEMA
I write to make an appeal to you to ensure FEMA's response to Hurricane Katrina will reflect and reflect well on our country.
I am a resident of New Orleans, Louisiana and have known for years that FEMA is so under-resourced and inefficient that it can't even respond to the very most basic needs that our community faces. But I haven't always been so blunt. When FEMA was formed in 1970 to aid in the aftermath of the disaster, it was a relatively low-profile federal agency that served many of the same functions as the US Coast Guard in times of emergencies. In fact, the FEMA response to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill was made possible by an amendment introduced by the Congressional Joint Economic Committee that provided for FEMA to respond immediately to spills of oil from ships into coastal waters.
So what happened since the Gulf of Mexico explosion? Well, it's pretty clear that FEMA's response to this disaster has been more involved than it should be.
Is there a due date for FEMA 81-31?
Yes. This is the official release date as of this writing. FEMA 81-31 is due out July 7th, 2018.
Is FEMA 81-31 mandatory?
No, it is voluntary. No one has ever had to register for mandatory FEMA 81-31, however, some of the new provisions that are included in the new regulations that became effective January 24, 2001, and on January 30, 2017, were mandatory. Those mandatory provisions are:
To provide for the administration and interpretation of laws adopted by the United States Congress or any state legislature under the authority of the Congress or that are enacted by the Secretary of Homeland Security.
To provide for the administration and interpretation of laws adopted under section 501(c)(1)(B) of the Homeland Security Act of 2002 and that are enacted by any state legislature when passed with the concurrence of the Governors of the State concerned.
To implement the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952.
Does the federal government have the right to regulate the sale, purchase, and transfer of firearms in interstate commerce?
Yes. A federal agency may exercise some of its enforcement responsibilities when, with respect to firearms, either: (1) firearms are sold, purchased, or transferred to, or received as a gift from, licensed individuals within the control of the United States; or (2) firearms are sold, purchased, or transferred between persons who are prohibited by Federal law from possessing or receiving firearms and are within the control of one or more other persons, each of whom is licensed pursuant to the laws of the State into which the firearm is to be shipped, transported, disposed of, possessed, or received.
Does FEMA have the authority to regulate the handling of hazardous materials in interstate commerce?
Yes. FEMA has the authority to issue permits for any hazardous material that it decides to regulate as “dangerous goods” as long as it first consults with the Department of Transportation and the Department of Health and Human Services. In addition, for any hazardous material that is hazardous under any statute or regulation adopted by the Environmental Protection Agency, the EPA may also issue the permit.
What happens if a firearm is lost or stolen?
FEMA can recover the lost or stolen firearms. The Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (ETC) provides free firearms training to police officers in over 3,000 locations nationwide. The training is required of individuals with a federal firearms license.
