    26 Emergency Items FEMA Wants You To Own

    FEMA is a somewhat controversial government agency. Some people love FEMA because they bring food and supplies after a disaster. Other people hate them because they don't bring enough food and supplies after a disaster (or not quickly enough).

    Some people say FEMA is inefficient and a waste of tax money. Other people argue that they wouldn't be so inefficient if they were properly funded. But whatever you think of FEMA, the people working there want you to be prepared.

    Why? Because the more prepared you are, the less you'll rely on them for help when disaster strikes (and they can only help so many people).
