It's not naysaying, BCnT. I'm saying that we need a more complete view of what happens at a disaster, and what the immediate needs are following one. The immediate need following any disaster is to first secure the situation. If you look on each side of yourself and each wall of the room you are in is blazing in fire or you stretch your neck as high as you can see, yet all you see is a giant wave about to nail you, could you imagine that you might be a bit preoccupied to worry if Greg has yummy food in his walk in freezer? BCnT, I've been through a few hurricanes with the USCG, myself. I was on the DART team out of Sector Lower Mississippi River/Memphis. I am aware that food is an issue, yet it is often represented as THE issue following a disaster. You can't lose sight of the big picture following any disaster. That isn't naysaying. It is keeping perspective.
