Executive Branch

As it relates to the checks and balances of our American government, the Executive Branch is responsible for the daily administration of the state bureaucracy. The head of the Executive Branch is the President of the United States. Underneath the President are the several Departments that have been created by Executive Order. The Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Justice are just a few examples of these subgroups within the Executive Branch. The representative leaders of these departments are collectively known as the President’s “Cabinet” of advisors.

Since the Executive Branch of our government is in charge of administrating the affairs of the nation, it is important to keep them in our prayers. The Executive Branch directs the general political flow of the federal government.

Craig Fugate, Director, Federal Emergency Management Agency

William Craig Fugate was born in May 1959 in Jacksonville, Florida. At the age of 11, he lost his mother and then his father when he was 16. He attended high school at Santa Fe High School and trained as a volunteer firefighter. He attended the college and paramedic school at Santa Fe Community College, and began a job as an emergency paramedic, eventually rising to the rank of Lieutenant with Alachua County Fire Rescue.

After serving 10 years as an emergency manager, he moved up to the state level as the Deputy Director for the Florida Emergency Management Division, and then became Director under Florida Governor Jeb Bush. As Director, he coordinated the state’s response to Hurricanes Charley, Frances, Ivan, Jeanne, Dennis, Katrina and Wilma.

Fugate was considered for the position as Director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency by President George W. Bush after the resignation of Mike Brown. In 2009, he was appointed FEMA Director by President Barack Obama.

Fugate is married to Sharee. He enjoys sea kayaking and is a licensed amateur radio operator.

IN THE NEWS

Flood ravaged south Louisiana residents could soon be in for a familiar sight as government agencies arrive to aid in their recovery: FEMA trailers. But these will not be the infamous formaldehyde-tainted model used in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005 – toxic trailers that became a symbol of government dysfunction during that storm-relief effort.

“We’re really focusing on safety,” FEMA administrator Craig Fugate said back in January. This may look like a standard manufactured housing unit on the outside, but it’s the inside that makes it special.”

More than 40,000 homes have been damaged in the historic rains and flooding in Baton Rouge and the surrounding area. Twelve people have died, and at least 30,000 people and 1,400 pets required rescue. The federal government has issued disaster declarations for 20 of Louisiana’s 64 parishes.

Executive Branch Prayer Needs

President Obama assured the people of East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana, that they were not alone in recovering from the flood disaster, but that help would be there “even after the TV cameras leave,” becaue of the gracious hearts of the American people.

The Obama Administration announced a new aid package of nearly $138 million to South Sudan, as the planet’s youngest nation struggles to confront a humanitarian crisis. About 200,000 people live in UN refugee camps after fleeing violence.

Pray about the aid needed for the people of Louisiana, and that the aid given to South Sudan will benefit its people.
