OODA - claim to be hiring already for NOLA h-cane security

I received an email from a group called OODA looking for "Armed Security Officers" for work in NOLA. Seems pretty quick for such an offer, as I have yet to see anyone stealing TVs yet. I know job postings dont go here, and that is not my goal, I just wanted to post a little bit of the email to see if anyone believes this is for real. This only about 1/4 of the notice.

OODA Careers & Hurricane Isaac Deployment


An OODA partner company is currently mobilizing Armed Disaster Response Officers for emergency deployment to the New Orleans / Louisiana Region.

The Governor of Louisiana has waived their in-state licensing requirements. Therefore, if you have valid armed law enforcement or security credentials / licenses from another state, you are eligible to deploy. If you donít have any current licenses or credentials, you can get trained and certified on the spot when you arrive. You will be expected to work 12 hour shifts or longer at a time. Pay rate is $2100.00 per week. Food & Lodging will also be provided. However, you will be required to provide your own transportation to and from the region at your own expense. You must also have your own service pistol and police-type duty belt & holster, along with BDU or 5.11 type pants (Tan or Khaki only) and good quality boots. The deployments will probably run continuously for at least a week, maybe longer, depending on the severity of the storm and damage.

word for word post on SA but from Falken Industries. Possibly that is the partner company they are speaking of.
