Mock nuclear explosion drill being conducted next week
As always, we need to keep our heads on a swivel ...

Emergency planners are preparing for the worst next Tuesday and Wednesday.

Regional West Medical Center is participating in a 21 – agency emergency disaster next week.

The scenario?

A nuclear explosion near Interstate 80.

The hospital will help decontaminate victims, treat injuries, and make sure everything is reported correctly.

"Every time we do an exercise, it is to test our plans," says Emergency Preparedness Coordinator Dave Edwards. "Not necessarily how the staff reacts, but are our plans in place correct."

Last year, the hospital prepared staff on protocols when they hosted a mock shooter exercise.

I wonder if the U.S. government/military is scared since Russia likes to overstep boundaries and push buttons lately. This isn't necessarily doom porn or WW3 prophecy, but it definitely sure means somebody in high ranking is shivering in their boots.

Sorry but maybe I missed it.

What buttons are the Russians pushing?

I do see the US poking the bear but haven't seen the bear pushing any buttons.

Explain?

Peace

I might also add, and I've said this on other threads ... no one country, not even all nuclear powers combined, have been as much a nuclear bully as the U.S. has.

ETA: This PDF gives a good rundown.

I think this is more about preparation than anything. I've posted it for awareness as many events have co-aligned with drills/exercises. Although I am not saying this is the case here, it is strictly awareness.

I doubt if it would be the Russians. There would be a slow and gradual escalation because they have so many other options.

But a volcanic eruption would be a good case to consider.

Good find. While being prepared never hurts, is this drill a sign of the times or of time running out? Having grown up under threat of possibly imminent mushroom clouds, the saber rattling of late has failed to move me . . . much. But, one never knows.

Nice source ... Mind if I borrow it?

Yeah - crossing borders - drones anyone?

I post from mobile, so I can't pull up the threads. Russia, about a week ago, flew nuclear warhead capable fighter jets all the way into Canadian territory, on the east coast, which is where most of our miltary power is. (Not in Canada, but the east coast of the U.S.)

No, I don't mind, why would I mind?

I'm not sure how old you are, but I'm guessing somewhere in the lower or mid 20's? Forgive me if I am wrong and this point doesn't pertain to you. However, Russia, and the West, flying missions like that was quite common up until the mid 90's.

ETA: I just looked at your introduction, you're 19. I mentioned age because I wouldn't expect anyone younger than 30 or so to realize how common that use to be, and how much it likely was to happen in a routine manner again once Russia regained its military might. I'm 31 by the way, so I only caught the back end of the cold war.

Is this Regional West Medical Center in Nebraska?

I realize drills are common, but the Ukrainian crisis adds some spice to the mix. I am only 19, but I'm well aware the U.S. and Russia have been playing war games ever since WW2. The Cold War still technically isn't over, and it seems both countries are trying to see how close they can get to the line without stepping over it.

Anyways, here's another planned drill

If this is a sign of time running out, then what was NLE 2010?


The FBI is coordinating a training exercise among multiple government and law enforcement organizations at the national and local level, to exercise response capabilities relative to a terrorist attack involving an improvised nuclear device.

Any nukes coming won't be from the Russians, not this time. They'll come over the southern border via terrorists if they come at all right now.

I would agree with that statement if Russia hadn't been doing these type of missions every now and then since the mid 2000's. They may have stepped them up a little since the Ukrainian crisis began, but that is also normal to flex muscle. They are not threatening the U.S. with intent or possible intent in so much as they are communicating capability and ability.

Scotts Bluff means... Dark Bluff...
Denver is not far from there, check their flag: -> Sunrise(New Dawn, ball of fire?) between two mountains.
The distance between Scottsbluff and Denver is in kilometers:
261.713:
2+6+1 = 9
7+1+3 = 11
911

It's also called the "The Mile-High City"... remember the "Mile high club"? Planes fly at that altitude.

These drills always freak me out when I see them planning them.
Part of me is still stuck in the cold war and terrified of such things happening.
And I am a sucker for that fear sometimes,just like a scary movie.

So, I'll just give myself the chills here and post this for some realism in the thread and atmosphere around a test drill.
