|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: FEMA facility located east of Eureka Springs off Hwy. 62.
What it really is: Using Google maps I’ve found numerous large building in this area, but most of them are commercial properties, and none of them look like a prison camp.
The claim: Closed airbase now being used as camp. New wooden barracks have been constructed at this location. Classic decorations – guard towers, barbed wire, high fences.
What it really is: Eaker Air Force Base (which is it’s actual name) was closed in 1992, and is now the Arkansas International Airport. The only military presence there is the Arkansas National Guard that uses the airport for helicopter training.
The claim: Descha County – site of WWII Japanese camps
What it really is: Only a few structures of this former camp remain.
In 1992 the camp was declared a National Historic Landmark, and is opened to the public.
The claim: Chicot/Drew Counties – site of WWII Japanese camps
What it really is: There was a Japanese interment camp here, but it is long gone.
The town itself is very small, with the largest buildings there being a couple of small warehouses that are not surrounded by any fences.
The claim: This location also is the repository for B-Z nerve agent, which causes sleepiness, dizziness, stupor; admitted use is for civilian control.
What it really is: The site did house BZ, but the facility the housed it was destroyed in 1999.
The site itself, while large, mostly contains small buildings used for storage.
The claim: (near Fort Smith, Arkansas) – Has new runway for aircraft, new camp facility with cap of 40,000 prisoners.
What it really is: Fort Chaffee is a National Guard base for the state of Arkansas.
The base has also been used to house refugees. In 2005 it was used to house 10,000 people affected by Hurricane Katrina. Any one of those people could have seen a prison camp there, if it was there, and yet none have.
The claim: Road to facility is blocked off by cement barriers and a stop sign. Sign states area is restricted; as of 1997 there were barbed wire fences pointing inward, a row of stadium lights pointed toward an empty field, etc. Black boxes on poles may have been cameras.
What it really is: Mather Air Force Base was closed in 1993, and is now the Sacramento Mather Airport.
Barbed wire fences, stadium lights, cement barriers, stop signs, and cameras are all very common thing for public airports, and are necessary for both security and safety measures.
