|Is that a FEMA Camp? is a blog dedicated to investigating claims of FEMA camp locations.
Below is some of their findings. Enjoy :)
The claim: Burlington, ?
What it really is: The Iowa Army Ammunition Plant is a munitions plant that builds large caliber ammunition for the Army (i.e. big bullets that has to be fired out of a cannon).
The plant itself only employs 20 military personnel, but over 5,800 civilians and 8,300 contractor personnel.
The claim: Ames, 10
The laboratory is located on the campus of Iowa State University, and is affiliated with the school.
The claim: Rock Island, 946
What it really is: Rock Island Arsenal is one of the oldest munitions plants in the country, and is a national historical landmark.
The facility also has 6,000 civilians working there, and only 250 military personnel working there. The site also has it’s own museum.
The claim: Argonne, 1,704
What it really is: Argonne National Laboratory is the first science and engineering research national laboratory in the United States. It’s five major areas of focus are: Conducting basic scientific research, operating national scientific facilities, enhancing the nation’s energy resources, developing better ways to manage environmental problems, and protecting national security.
The facility is also open to anyone 16 years old or older to take guided tours.
The claim: Mountain Home, 9,112
What it really is: Mountain Home Air Force Base is a Air Force base that (after looking at it on Google maps) is out in the middle of nowhere.
The only thing there are some farmer fields that surround the base, mountains, housing for base personal and their families, and some buildings that are common with Air Force bases in order to support and maintain the aircraft there.
The claim: Warner Robins, 8,800
What it really is: Robins Air Force Base is a major Air Force Base that hosts the Warner Roberts Air Logistics Center that is used not only for the maintenance of Air Force air craft, but also employs almost 13,000 civilians.
The base also has it’s own museum as well, which has around half a million visitors annually.
The claim: (1,600 W76/Trident I warheads; 400 W88/Trident II warheads; 160 W80-0/Sea-Launched Cruise Missiles) Kings Bay, 16,000
What it really is: Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay is a major Navy base that is the home port for the U.S. Atlantic Fleet‘s ballistic missile nuclear submarines which are armed with Trident missile nuclear weapons. Whether the base actually keeps any nuclear missiles on site is unknown as such information would most likely be considered top secret, but even if the base did have nuclear weapons on site, it wouldn’t be unexpected considering the base does support ballistic missile nuclear submarines.
While the base does cover 16,000 acres, 4,000 of those acres are protected wetlands.
