FEMA is looking for outfits that can set up turnkey "Base Support Camp"(s) in the Pacific.
The RFI identifies them National Responder Support Camps. Based on the documentation, these are standalone all inclusive camps with segregated male and female areas; all contained within a fenced security barrier.
Apparently FEMA does not expect these "Responders" to do much physical "responding" outside of the camp's fenced security barrier, because they also want these camps to have exercise yards. The responders also require disability access, and some requirement to have Kosher and vegetarian foods.
One has to wonder how these "Support Camps" will fit in with the contract the Centers For Disease Control (CDC) awarded ASIA Pacific Airlines for the Emergency Delivery Of Strategic National Medical Stockpile to the Pacific.
But have no worries, these camps will be happy happy happy places as personified by the joyful face of this FEMA Mass Care Group Supervisor shown on FEMA's website. (see photo below)
