The brand new Dade County Civil Defense Emergency Operations Center on Galloway Road. Modern and State of the Art (for 1960, that is). The South Miami Amateur Radio Club held its monthly meetings there, and we were all enrolled as radio operators for Civil Defense, with official ID cards, etc. Seems almost laughable nowadays, but this was when the USA and USSR had literally thousands of nuclear tipped ICBMs aimed at each other, and we were conducting air raid drills in the schools. In just two years, the Cuban Missile Crisis would bring us literally to the brink of World War III, and there were nuclear missile bases in the Everglades. It was long ago replaced by the current Miami-Dade EOC farther north, and looks tiny and hopelessly primitive in comparison, but the building is still there, and in use. But I don't know who is using it now...
Civil Defense and Security Experts all over the country must have watched in horror the drama in Atlanta this week. An unusual combination of events (school canceled mid-day, weather prediction off, and millions of drivers who don't know how to drive on snow) gave the metro area a jammed Interstate Highway System with many stuck in their cars for hours and hours. A terrorist attack, especially one against our infrastructure could easily get a worse result for the country nationwide. Imagine the electric going out for one month. Or a one-week shut down of the Internet. How about no telephone service for one year? Suppose your heat goes out, and you are told it will stay out for two weeks. What is your plan for that? It is time for some really smart people to do some serious planning, and right away!
FYI MT Civil Defense will hold a mock drill at Bidda Tower for Q2022 Supreme Committee on Corniche from 10a to noon today.

Rappler - 11/30/2013 NDRRMC: Too many cooks spoil the broth by Aries Rufo Some 48 hours before Yolanda (Haiyan) hit land on November 8, the operations center of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) was already on "red alert status." Its regional and local counterparts that were on the path of the super typhoon were ordered to take preventive measures. As in previous disaster situations, different government agencies started mobilizing resources in anticipation of a huge disaster. After all, Yolanda was expected to traverse 9 regions before leaving the Philippine Area of Responsibility. The Department of National Defense (DND), Department of Health (DOH), Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) prepositioned their respective resources, while other government agencies activated their own response teams. The Office of Civil Defense (OCD), which serves as the secretariat of the NDRCC, was disseminating weather b ...

Myself and Chris, took 50 people of a tour of the base in a London Transport Routemaster Bus, and ending up at the Battle Command Bunker, then back to "Restore" for some talks, with some fantastic food laid on for lunch. All set in the old 55th Squadron's Operations HQ. We had set up our display of Cold War artifacts from Upper Heyford's history, along with my collection of US Civil Defense items from the Cuban Missile Crisis. 51 years ago to the day, (Black Saturday) 27 October 1962. which was rather poigniant in some ways. We also found another building we had yet to explore.

SAVAR TRAGEDY, 2013: 1. On 24 April 2013, an eight-story commercial building, Rana Plaza, collapsed in Savar, a sub-district in the Greater Dhaka Area, the capital of Bangladesh. 2. The search for the dead ended on 13 May with the death toll of 1,127. Approximately 2,500 injured people were rescued from the building alive. 3. It is considered to be the deadliest garment-factory accident in history, as well as the deadliest accidental structural failure in modern human history. 4. The building contained clothing factories, a bank, apartments, and several other shops. The shops and the bank on the lower floors immediately closed after cracks were discovered in the building. Warnings to avoid using the building after cracks appeared the day before had been ignored. Garment workers were ordered to return the following day and the building collapsed during the morning rush-hour. 5. The head of the Bangladesh Fire Service & Civil Defense, Ali Ahmed Khan, said that the upper four floors had been built without a ...
Storms, floods, and typhoons are potential threats that are usually known for causing damage to everything they pass and is only surpassed by its abrupt presence. Without warning, these things will swiftly sweep through a random neighbourhood, leaving nothing but destruction in its wake. I am working with the City Disaster Office since 1997, we only rely weather advisories from PAGASA through the Office of the Civil Defense in which I can attest that the advisory are very broad and delayed in disseminations to the different LDRRMC. Back in January 2009, weather disturbances caused by the Tail End of a Cold Front had caused heavy rainfall in Cagayan de Oro City, flooding its streets laying waste to its inhabitants. The disaster could have been prevented if there was an early warning system that would allow people to monitor the weather in a local and accurate level. The need of this specific weather warning system was further catalysed because of what happened during Tropical Depression Sendong, last Decem ...
Beginning in 1918, a series of fire lookout towers were constructed on Long Island to aid in the fighting of wildfires. The first constructed was on Telescope Hill in the fall of 1918 (only two were constructed that year), and went into operation in March 1919. The tower was a 60 foot Aermotor LS40 model, with a cab placed on top.The Telescope Hill tower reported 120 fires between March 17 and June 15, 1919. During World War II, a new cab was built below the original cab to be used for fire watching, and the original was used by Civil Defense observers. Nazi "U-Boats" were spotted three times from Telescope Hill, one of which was captured after being spotted. Telescope Hill was at the end of Tower Hill ave, Farmingville, NY
The Eggon tribe is the largest tribe in Nassarawa state and has never produced the governor. In a bid to realize this ambition,the ombatse militia group was formed. The violence in Nassarawa recently was purely political. The incumbent CPC governor,Al-Makura saw this as a threat to his 2015 re-election plans. Already there were rumours that Eggon people planned to present information Minister Labaran Maku as their sole candidate. The Governor organized an operation with the state commissioner of Police to raid the shrine and dislodge the group without informing Force Headquarters. The operation as we all know turned out a disaster where scores of policemen,Civil Defense personnel and SSS agents lost their lives. A visibly angry IGP during his visit to Nassarawa state last week shunned the governor. The Governor reportedly rushed to the IGP's office in Abuja after the visit to apologize for not informing him of the failed operation. Part of the reason why Niger State Governor criticized the poor security a ...

Quick Tips For Corpers Before Leaving For Orientation Camp by PRINCE PHILIP 1. Don't be late in getting to camp!! Infact, be early so your registration can be stress free. 2. Avoid Camp Food. YES!! Camp food is made by a bunch of unprofessional cooks who just throw the miserly food ingredients given to them to make that crap called food. Its not the faults of these women but the government/NYSC officials. The best foods are made on Sundays..  3. Respect yourself and don't break the rules. 4. DONT BE AFRAID OF ANYBODY IN CAMP!! YES! The soldiers cant beat you. Neither the Civil Defense & Police. They can only drill you, but if you are tired, just squat on the floor and tell them you are tired. SIMPLE! Don't be rude because you can be thrown into the jail (After a camp court trial sha), but you don't have to do the frog jumps, press ups, e.t.c if you don't want to! 5. MAmmy Market is your friend.. If you are an Ajebutter like me who is very particular about where and what I eat, you can do what I did. Fi ...

A message from a fellow Oath Keeper: To My Brothers at Oath Keepers: You need to understand you have lost your Constitution and the Republic which you served. Please turn your skills to your local communities as protector and providers. Organize the civilians, who have no military experience to draw on, to secure a base of safe haven. You must work as the Civil Defense did during the Cold War; work with local law enforcement if they are part of the community. Your enemies will be the looters and gangs of marauders. You most like will not be able to stand against an organized military force, I feel you understand this very well. You will only jeopardize the people and property you were trying to protect. Best resistance, is for the healthy among your group to revert to guerilla tactics. Use your judgment as to how well trained the military group is that confronts you. It could merely be individuals dressed as soldiers, but actually they are police and TSA personnel. Bunkering down can be suicidal!! Supplie ...

The number of people missing after a typhoon devastated parts of the southern Philippines jumped to nearly 900 after families and fishing companies reported losing contact with more than 300 fishermen at sea, officials said Sunday. The fishermen from southern General Santos city and nearby Sarangani province left a few days before Typhoon Bopha hit the main southern island of Mindanao on Tuesday, triggering flash floods that killed more than 600, Civil Defense chief Benito Ramos said. Ramos said the fishermen were headed to the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea and to the Pacific Ocean. He said there has been no contact from them for a week. "We have declared them missing," he said. "Maybe they are still alive." Ramos said they may have sought shelter on the many small islands in the Spratlys and the Celebes Sea, and lost battery power and have not been able to call. He said the coast guard, navy and fishing vessels have launched a search. After slamming into the southern Philippines, the typhoon mov ...
In April 1984, President Reagan signed Presidential Director Number 54 that allowed FEMA to engage in a secret national "readiness exercise" under the code name of REX 84. The exercise was to test FEMA's readiness to assume military authority in the event of a "State of Domestic National Emergency" concurrent with the launching of a direct United States military operation in Central America. The plan called for the deputation of U.S. military and National Guard units so that they could legally be used for domestic law enforcement. These units would be assigned to conduct sweeps and take into custody an estimated 400,000 undocumented Central American immigrants in the United States. The immigrants would be interned at 10 detention centers to be set up at military bases throughout the country. REX 84 was so highly guarded that special metal security doors were placed on the fifth floor of the FEMA building in Washington, D.C. Even long-standing employees of the Civil Defense of the Federal Executive Departm ...

Hospital in Bacolor town holds earthquake, fire drill By Joelyn G. Baluyut BACOLOR, Pampanga, Feb.1 (PIA) -- Ricardo P. Rodriguez Memorial Hospital-Annex (RPRMH-Annex) in Bacolor town conducted on Wednesday an earthquake and fire drill to better equip its employees on what to do during calamities. “Employees took part in the exercise which covered six stages namely alarm, response (duck, cover, and hold), evacuation, assembly or head counting, incident command system, and mass casualty handling,” Michael Dumlao of the Office of Civil Defense - 3 said. Dumlao added the employees were eager learners. He said that nurses, doctors, and hospital personnel, regardless of their position, could help and save lives of patients when there's disaster. “What’s lacking though is the floor plan and evacuation routes for people inside the hospital would know what to do and where to go, said Dumlao. The Civil Defense officer suggested that the hospital should procure safety gadget devices such as helmets, radio c ...

Civil Air Patrol was conceived in the late 1930s by legendary New Jersey aviation advocate Gill Robb Wilson, who foresaw aviation's role in war and general aviation's potential to supplement America's military operations. With the help of New York Mayor Fiorello La Guardia, the new Civil Air Patrol was established on December 1, 1941, just days before the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. The CAP insignia, a red three-bladed propeller in the Civil Defense white-triangle-in-blue-circle, began appearing on private aircraft everywhere. CAP initially planned only on liaison and reconnaissance flying, but the civilian group's mission expanded when German submarines began to prey on American ships off the coast of the United States and CAP planes began carrying bombs and depth charges." A CAP crew first interrupted a sub attack on a flight out of Rehoboth Beach, saving a tanker off Cape May, N.J. Since radio calls for military bombers were often unproductive, unarmed CAP fliers dived in mock attacks to force subs ...

Just weeks after the school shooting in Newtown, Conn., the New Hampshire State Police and a local town police department (and students) are learning how to handle a shooter in a school. This was an approved police training session, in which students participated with police. The town and regional school that approved is quiet, semi-rural, very low crime, similiar to Newtown. The official state motto of NH is live free or die. Its on every license plate. In lifetimes since it became, we never thought we'd have to take it so literally here, that our SWAT teams would need to learn this, and that we'd need to fund APC vehicles, especially for our children. At least not since the bomb shelters and duck-and-cover early Civil Defense taught in schools at the beginning of the Cold War. Our police are different than some other states; they're our neighbors, go to the same stores, have children in the same schools, are extended family people, not the jackboots of the Nazi SS, or USSR KGB.

Typhoon Pablo (Bopha) slammed into the southern island of Mindanao Tuesday, toppling trees and blowing away homes with 210-kilometer (130-mile) per hour gusts before easing overnight as it headed toward the South China Sea. A total of 142 people died and 241 others were missing in the mountainous Mindanao town of New Bataan, Lieutenant-Colonel Lyndon Paniza told AFP. Eighty-one other people were killed in the nearby province of Davao Oriental and 15 in other areas, Paniza and the civil defense office said. Social Welfare Secretary Corazon Soliman and other officials described scenes of utter devastation with houses and other structures in some towns and villages ripped apart by the most powerful storm to h ...

Elko Warrior Flag Football League weekly recap: Ok Flaggers last this weekend was a tough one. Now as the playoff battle tightens up with a strong possibility of a three way tie for the second seat.

NATO foreign ministers have approved Turkey's request for Patriot missiles to defend its borders, a statement of "solidarity" with its fellow alliance member. "Today NATO agreed to augment Turkey's air defense by deploying Patriot missiles to Turkey. Turkey has asked for NATO's support and we stand with Turkey in the spirit of strong solidarity," said NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen. "To Turkish people we say, we are determined to defend you and your territory. To anyone who would want to attack Turkey, we say, don't even think about it. " The move is in response to the spilling over of the Syrian civil war into Turkey, where errant Syrian artillery shells struck the border town of Akcakale and killed five Turkish civilians in October.
MANILA, Philippines (3rd UPDATE) - At least 80 people have died in Mindanao from the onslaught of Typhoon Pablo (international name Bopha), authorities said Tuesday. In New Bataan town in Compostela Valley, at least 43 people died when flash floods swept away an Army patrol base, a landslide hit a community, and trees fell on people. "I've counted 43 bodies on the floor," Lt. Col. Lyndon Paniza, spokesman of the Army's 10th Infantry Division, confirmed the deaths. He said 23 others were injured while 6 soldiers remain missing. Paniza said he has no confirmed information yet on the number of missing civilians in the Compostela Valley tragedy. Compostela Valley Governor Arturo Uy said local officials told him earlier in the day that 34 people were killed in New Bataan. "It's possible they have found more bodies," "Ang unang balita, may biglang isang malaking bugso ng tubig galing sa bundok na di nila inasahan," he said. "Nag-request na po ako ng chopper sa Army.

Well done Stevie Wonder After calls by thousands of individuals and organisations across the world the renowned music legend and civil rights leader, Stevie Wonder, has cancelled his scheduled performance at a benefit gala for the Israeli military. Wonder said: "[W]ith a heart that has always cried out for world unity, I will not be performing at the Israeli Defense Force Gala on December 6th. I am respectfully withdrawing my participation from this year's event to avoid the appearance of partiality. As a Messenger of Peace, I am and have always been against war, any war, anywhere. Hoping for one world, one people, one day." - Stevie Wonder According to the Associated Press, a contact at the United Nations recommended the canceling of Wonder's performance because he is an official "Messenger of Peace" for the UN.

Just today, on the steps of the Alachua County Courthouse, I heard someone on a bike talking to someone else about the handguns he has, saying he just bought another one. He justified it based on the economy and the times we live in. The Mayans were right in a way, maybe the civilized world has come to an end. We've become a nation of desensitized, instant gratification, jaded people where our social reality is mostly virtual. Does not compute.
Dear all, After consultations with Jadinne, Simone and Olaf (who got stuck at the airport this morning) I have decided to cancel all activities in Leyte for today and tomorrow as Walter is currently attending the MT meeting and cannot send out this email. All local government offices in Region 8 were closed today as per advise from OCD (Office of Civil Defense) and it doesn’t make much sense to push through with activities even though the current wheather situation is not everywhere as bad. We will also close the Maasin Office due to Signal 3 but keep the Tacloban Offices open until further advise by Jadinne and Simone. Many thanks, Andreas

Israel update As of November 18, 2012, the number of rockets and mortars fired at Israeli civilians from Gaza for 2012 stood at more than 1,700. More than three million Israelis live within range of rocket and mortar attacks. • All kindergartens and schools remain closed within a 40-kilometer radius of the Gaza border. • All places of work remain closed within a 7-kilometer radius of the Gaza border. Civil Defense officials have instructed all residents within this area to remain within a maximum 15 seconds from a bomb shelter or protected area – the amount of time residents have to reach shelter once radar detects incoming projectiles and triggers air raid sirens. • Since the beginning of Operation Pillar of Defense the IDF and news reports this morning indicate the Iron Dome neutralized at least 277 rockets aimed at Israeli civilians including eight rockets Sunday morning fired at the Tel Aviv area, Ashkelon and Ashdod, home to a combined population of over 1 million. • Israel deployed a fifth ...
I figured out why I am in the position I am now, because God had a plan for me to be an engineer, and engineers don't have very easy task, from all aspects of engineering, such as... Aerospace Engineering, Agricultural Engineering, Architectural Engineering, Automotive Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Ceramic Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, and they all correlate with each other. For example. Automotive Engineering sometimes correlates with Environmental Engineering for fuel efficient cars that puts less of a carbon footprint in the environment. or sometimes Civil Engineering correlates with Computer Engineering for Drones that are unmanned air craft(s) used for Civil Defense. Yep now I know why I haven't had it very easy, because I was conditioned for what my dream career is. :)

My father, Ralph Hollis Miller, ran away from a farm where he had been apprenticed out at the age of 14 to join the Navy, which you could do ninety or so years ago. After a life career in the Navy, he retired from there and joined the Coast Guard for the next twenty years or so. He then worked as an electronic engineer, and I recall a workbench in the basement which had both tubes and transistors on it. I had no idea what relics of a revolution I was seeing at that young age. One brother, Ralph, was a full time Navy man also, leaving home at age 17, just after I was born, to join the Navy. My other brother, George Winfield Scott, served four years in the Air Force as a mechanic. When my father retired, he worked for the Civil Defense. Although I don't really know my brothers, who were gone from home when I was growing up, still remembering these amazing men in my life on Veteran's Day. They used to blow a dollar on penny candy of my choice at the corner store when they came home on leave, I remember that. ...

22 Dead, 111 Injured In Gas Tanker Explosion In Riyadh Riyadh - SPA : The Director General of Civil Defense, Lieutenant General Saad bin Abdullah Al-Tuwaijri, said the number of the dead people as a result of a gas tanker explosion, which occurred on Khurais Road on Thursday morning, rose to 22 and 111 injured with 3 persons still missing. He said in remarks broadcast from the scene on 'Al-Ekhbariyah' Channel that the incident occurred because of the misconduct of the tanker driver who is a national of an Asian country, pointing out that the civil defense as it was notified about the incident applied a contingency plan. He also noted that a huge fire had erupted as a result of the gas leak from the tanker which extended to a distance of 300 meters from the site of the collision of the tanker with a flyover of Khurais Road intersection with Sheikh Jaber Street in Riyadh, explaining that 'the fire has almost finished now.' He warned of injuries that might occur to about 10,000 people of the crowds and passe ...

The models are now saying this 'thing' will have a central pressure of 940 mbs. just before landfall.

Civil Defense evacuates 179 pilgrims after building catches fire
The single event that has affected me during my life is the murder of JFK. At the time John F. Kennedy was assassinated, I was a high-school junior who could recite JFK’s inaugural address and most of his speeches verbatim (both forward and backward); and, could deliver the inaugural in Spanish. I grew up during the Cold War practicing “duck and cover” every Friday morning at 10:00 AM when the Civil Defense air raid sirens sounded. In those days, the “tube” had a flickering and snowy black and white screen and I watched hour after hour as history unfolded before my young and impressionable mind. Watching the Cuban Missile Crisis was like waiting for the world to end. And so, almost 49 years later, I wonder what to believe about the JFK assassination; or, in the final analysis, just about anything and everything. How do we decide what we believe and what we don’t? Do you believe that Jesus Christ was the Son of God? Why or why not? Do you believe that Jimmy Carter “only lusted in his heart” ...

Child found murdered at home, maid held Arab News (SRPC) - 20 hrs ago An Asian housemaid in Yanbu was arrested after she allegedly decapitated the 4-year-old daughter of her employer with a cleaver on Wednesday. The parents were at work at the time the alleged crime took place. The crime that shocked the community in the industrial town of Yanbu unfolded at the Alo’yoon district. On arriving home, the mother was unable to enter the house, the maid having locked it from inside. She called her husband who was at work. He rushed home. Driving at high speed he collided with another car carrying a family. The collision killed one of the passengers and injured a young girl who was hospitalized along with the father of the maid’s victim. He had called Civil Defense before he left work, seeking their help to open his apartment door where his wife stood. Civil Defense workers broke into the house, entering with the mother. They found the child slain on the bed in the parents’ bedroom. The mother reportedly c ...

Radio coverage of earthquake drill: "one woman who was in the CTV building says 'don't drop/cover/hold; if I'd done that instead of running outside I'd be dead now'". So 1.3 million of us wasted our time, in the opinion of one person. Isn't that known as the exception that proves the rule? Are we supposed to trust civil defense or not?

It conveys an urgent message that massive redeployment and protective tactics of forces in Israel are underway in preparation for an imminent military encounter with Iran. In some cases appeals are being made for money based on this update. Under conditions of this magnitude, there would normally be confirming witnesses from sources inside Israel such as public local reports (from Hebrew speakers), and the civil defense or the media. There have been no independent military, news media or other official channels to verify, confirm or even mention what is being claimed.

I always maintained that the duty of personal and national protection is the responsibility of the Citizen including during times of declared war. To give government the responsibility to ensure your protection is to set the stage for tyranny and usurpation. Here is part of what I said to the Citizens of Boston April 30, 1776 "I trust their Spirits are not depressd by the Injuries they have sustaind. The large Experience they have had of military Tyranny should rather heighten their Ideas of the Blessings of civil Liberty and a free Government. While THEIR OWN troops are posted among them for their Protection, they surely will not lose the Feelings and resign the Honor of Citizens to the military; but remember always that standing Armies are formidable Bodies in civil Society, & the Suffering them to exist at any time is from Necessity, & ought never to be of Choice."

Fluoride Used by Nazis to Sterilize Inmates and Make Them Docile. Fluoride a Key Ingredient of Prozac First of all, it needs to be stated that the 'substance' referred to as 'Fluoride' is a misnomer - there is no such substance listed in the periodic chart of the elements, nor in the prestigious CRC handbook, nor in the sacred 'bible' of the pharmaceutical industry - the illustrious 'Merck Index'. Instead, we find a GAS called Fluorine - and from the use of this gas in various industries such as aluminum manufacturing and the nuclear industry -certain toxic byproducts are created which have 'captured' fluorine molecules. One such toxic, poisonous 'byproduct' is called sodium Fluoride - which according to the Merck Index is primarily used as rat and cockroach poison and is also the active ingredient in most toothpastes and as an "additive to drinking water". But sadly, there is much more to this sordid tale. Did you know that sodium Fluoride is also one of the basic ingredients in both PROZAC (FLUoxetene H ...

Help is not on the way… The old Civil Defense literature of the Fifties compares well with current FEMA inaction. The 1956 classic “Disaster Fatigue” prepared by physicians of the American Psychiatric Association provides a good example of emergency theorizing run aground. The happy 32-page booklet makes three incredible points. First, the physicians advance an apocalyptic vision co-opted later by Dr. Strangelove. They say that “The use of atomic weapons or other agents of mass destruction against populated centers will produce a maximum degree of terror, deprivation, and community disruption.” This Hiroshima scare, although a rational enemy might pursue more limited objectives. Apparently, “maximum degree” makes real defense impossible. The language trap embedded in “agents of mass destruction“ also helps undercut the efficacy of Civil Defense, even as a clean-up operation. Perhaps the authors meant to say “wide spread” instead. Physicians tend to be poor writers. The booklet offe ...

Chaminade Univ. hires Ed Teixeira, former head of state Civil Defense, as professor in its Homeland Security Leadership Development program.
I'm sorry for your electrical issues. It all sounds so familiar. Hawaii Electric Company (HECO) has the highest electrical rates in the nation, charges that are THREE TIMES the national average, and, I suspect, the most poorly maintained and oldest grid system in America. But they've never missed a dividend and are absolutely guaranteed a profit. They have media so buffaloed that everyone just parrots the HECO party line when anything goes wrong. A single lightning strike knocked out power to the whole island during Christmas, 2010. It went on for a couple of days. The Obamas were in residence for their Christmas vacation on the North Shore; and yes, the lights went out up there. Of course the Secret Service had backup generators on hand for just such an eventuality. But they had more generation capability than they needed, so the President ordered a bunch of the units at his rented house be turned over to Civil Defense, so they could be better deployed. What we NEVER have, however, are triple d ...
* ** FOR RELEASE TO Amateur Radio ONLY ** * Hello all stations. In this message: … Update on RACES to ACS transition program. Bottom line, no changes. … Continuation of present RACES organization … RACES net training schedule. NO changes to schedule to the end of this year. … Exercise training with Operation “What do I do next?” Update on RACES to ACS transition program. As you know, we have been working with MEMA to affect changes to the RACES program since last fall. Their main premise is for us to reduce the local government use of AR resources providing gap communications in an emergency. They were concerned that Amateur Radio (AR) is still married to the old Civil Defense model, and that AR needed to fit better in the 21st century modern communication and response doctrine environment. MEMA’s main goal is that AR should rather focus on situational/incident reporting as part of our response activities under the ESF-2 umbrella, based on what is done in the highly successful SKY ...
This is so true! My Carol's late husband created the American Falls EMT/Ambulance. She then qualified as an EMT and spent many years being called out anytime, day or night, regular day or holiday. These kind of services in small towns save so many lives. In my late teens I had the great forturn to train in the Civil Defense where I received some firefighting training and got to use it. Pluse I was trained In Advanced First Aid and Medical Self Help, which was all there was in the late '60s. Thanks William, and to everyone...do more for those who selflessly protect all of us.
