FEMA Head Brock Long announced Wednesday he is resigning, capping off a rocky tenure marked by ethics probes and scrutiny of his agency’s handling of a deadly hurricane in Puerto Rico.
In a statement, Long said he was stepping aside to spend more time with his family living in North Carolina. “While this has been the opportunity of the lifetime, it is time for me to go home to my family — my beautiful wife and two incredible boys,” he said.
It has been a great honor to serve our country as @fema Administrator for the past two years. While this has been the opportunity of the lifetime, it is time for me to go home to my family.

“As a career emergency management professional, I could not be prouder to have worked alongside the devoted, hardworking men and women of FEMA for the past two years.” Peter Gaynor, the agency’s deputy administrator, will serve as acting chief until President Trump nominates a replacement and that person is confirmed.
