The Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA, is an agency that allows the White House to suspend constitutional government upon declaration of a national emergency.
According to news reports, FEMA was called upon to manage a small outbreak of the Hanta virus in Texas. Following the bombing of a building in Dallas in 1998, Doctor Alvin Kurtzweil implied to FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder that the virus that FEMA had been assigned to contain was extraterrestrial in origin and the doctor claimed that the recent bombing had been an effort to hide the deceased bodies of four firefighters and a boy, in a provisional medical quarantine office that FEMA had had in the building.
Kurtzweil also predicted that, during alien recolonization of the planet Earth, the president would declare a state of emergency, at which time all government and federal agencies would come under FEMA's power. Kurtzweil referred to FEMA as "the secret government." (The X-Files Movie)
In this regard, FEMA was mentioned in a computer screen that, in 2002, was discovered by supersoldier Knowle Rohrer at Mount Weather, moments after the information had been accessed by Agent Mulder, who had crept into the military complex. (TXF: "The Truth")
- The words "FEMA, THE FEDERAL EMERGENCY" can be seen, written backwards, on the aforementioned computer screen.
- In reality, the Federal Emergency Management Agency has its headquarters at the Mount Weather Complex.
