"Volunteers are sought for the Operation Downpour Full Scale Exercise, to be conducted at the University of Rhode Island Ryan Center on August 3, 2017. This exercise is part of a research project designed to help improve emergency response decontamination practices. It will also provide a test of the Ryan Center evacuation plan.

The exercise will examine different emergency response procedures for decontaminating/cleaning large numbers of people who have potentially been exposed to toxic materials."


And they'll even throw in $10...!? cheers:

So, do I read it right, that they are preparing for a terrorist strike with a dirty bomb or with neurotoxins?

Does it include stripping down as a group and getting hosed down with an iodine laced decontaminate? Cause I'll want $15 if that's the case.

Disaster testing is very important.

If the real thing happens. It's good to know they practiced what works and what doesn't work.

And we all know what happens when they start conducting drills and preparing for disaster / terrorist strikes.....

I would not volunteer, nor go any where near that place and after what has happened on 911 - 7/7 ect and any one who does. Should think again to many of these things go wrong.

Wth are they going to spray you with?! A turmeric tracer (4) and follow you with lasers (14)? Obviously it gets your blood going (7, 9 ,10, 11) and will be administered via aerosol (6 and 8) Then you get to take a shower! Outside! Four hours?!

No thanks. I think there is some grass growing somewhere that needs supervision on that date!

Good thing I'm not qualified. I have at least 7 things on that list. Guess that counts me out to be a Guinea pig. I guess it was a good thing I had that Brain Aneurysm.

I agree wholeheartedly. I wouldn't want to be anywhere within 500 miles on that date.
I would hate to die because of a coincidence.

Everyone should volunteer. You can do something....and we could use the help. Don't just expect us to come save you. CONTRIBUTE. Even if its just answering phones or a an information desk in a disaster.

Contact your local Fire Dept, Police and Emergency Management, Red Cross etc... wherever you live. Theres something you all can do...and not just expect us to all save your butts! Thanks.........

Which leads back to the "we were just doing a drill when..."

I would not want an unknown spray that can coat my skin's ability to breath to spread on me. Even for a good cause!

Drainbamage saves the day!

There is an old tale of a man in a village. He's got a farm, a wife, they have a son, etc. Everybody stops by and says, "Your life is good!" He always responds, "Good... bad... who can say?" A series of alternating bad and good things happen to him during his life. Everybody stops by: "You got a new horse! That is good!"; He answers; "Your son broke his leg from riding the horse, how bad!"; He answers; "The army conscripted all able bodied men. Good thing your son had a broken leg!"; same answer. That goes on a couple more times but you get the idea.

We don't get to see everything, all at once. We do not get to choose only the good. Even if you could, that is not really living life.

I'm glad I'm over way past the left coast! That's good! But who can really say?

eta - Glad you recovered enough to be here!

Usually they charge you extra for that .

The Naval Undersea Warfare Center Division Newport shared this "exercise" on their Facebook yesterday. It was originally posted by the Rhode Island Emergency Management Agency. Thought that was weird. Then again, the entire thing is not normal human behavior.


To simulate chemicals in this study, each volunteer will be sprayed three times with a harmless mix of baby oil, oil of wintergreen, and a ginger extract. Following the decontamination processes, special cameras will be used to measure how much of the sprayed material is left on the skin.



Volunteers will be split into different groups, each of which will take part in one or more types of decontamination or no treatment at all (control groups). The three types of decontamination we will be testing are called “dry”, “gross” (or “simple”) and “technical”. Dry decontamination involves blotting skin and hair with an absorbent gauze pad. Gross (or simple) decontamination involves passing between two fire trucks that will be spraying a high volume, fine mist of cold water. Technical decontamination is essentially showering with warm water within a tent.


Something seems not quite right about the purposes of this "study" IMO. Does one really need to do this in order to know how to decontaminate toxins off the skin?

This part stands out:

Following the decontamination processes, special cameras will be used to measure how much of the sprayed material is left on the skin.


Sounds like a cleverly constructed modern day MKultraish experiment.

Ah...


NEWPORT, RI -- Capt. Michael R. Coughlin, commanding officer of the Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) Division Newport, and Dr. David M. Dooley, president of the University of Rhode Island (URI), signed an education partnership agreement (EPA) for undersea research during a brief ceremony on Tuesday, June 27.

Let me see. I've heard of countries doing that in the past. Showering, delousing (decontaminating people having lice.)
Well, it'll come to me sooner or later.

I feel sorry for the student volunteers that will probably be falling for this, and you know the colleges will say, if you do this seminar, you will get extra credit for participating. Yuh, yeah, no thanks.

Key phrase


special cameras


They are testing some tech that's been in R&D for a while now and is ready for trials.
