Head of FEMA resigning, questioned over use of vehicles

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said at the time that Long would reimburse the federal government for his non-official use of government vehicles.

Mr Long, who has years of experience in emergency management, added that this had been "the opportunity of the lifetime" and that during his tenure the agency, known as Fema, had worked in more than 220 declared disasters.

Long was also found by the Department Of Homeland Security's Inspector General to have improperly used government vehicles and resources to travel back to his North Carolina home.
