I have taken the course. It teaches Emergency Operations Planners at all levels on how to create and test emergency response plans. You cannot train firefighters, EMS, LE or others on how to help people if you do not train. The more realistic the training is the better, because this teaches muscle memory etc. There is a lot that goes into these training operations, sometimes over a year or two of planning, depending on the scale, number of agencies participating etc. There is a lot of things you have to learn and think about when it comes to setting up training events. That is what this course teaches. There is an old saying - you fight as you train, so train as you fight - that goes across all spectrum of jobs.
This program is not a course to stage false flags, but for training. You are way over thinking this, and hate to say it, but grasping at straws.

Has anyone ever read FEMA "IS-139 Exercise Design"?
Last night, while talking to my friend about the school shooting in Florida, I remembered that I wrote this essay back in 2011 about FEMA's practice of creating 'exercises' -- ranging from table top to full scale. In my opinion, the central document FEMA IS-139 that I found about 10 years ago on FEMA's website is basically a blueprint for planning and staging false flag events.
PLEASE USE THE ESSAY BELOW FOR A BRIEF INTRODUCTION. I know it has grammatical errors, but it's a cut and paste from the original and I wanted to keep it as original as possible. FEMA's IS-139 has been seemingly scrubbed from the internet -- at least FEMA's website. I had to go through two hard drives to find it. The link is for the google drive file containing the 'course' IS-139 and it's several hundred pages long, I recommend reading it in it's entirety as it deals with players (actors), staged deaths, prepared false media statements, and more.
To me, after originally reading the FEMA doc along with many other articles and breakdowns, it's apparent that the GOV can and probably does stage false flag events for the purposes of political gain. What a better way to pull the rug over unwitting participants eyes than to disguise the whole operation as an 'exercise'? Maybe this is why we always hear of reports from people on the ground during these major operations asking: "Is this real world" or "Is this a drill?"... Remember the London bombings? Remember 9/11? The list goes on.
Recipe For Disaster: FEMA Paves The Way For False Flag Terrorism
February 7, 2011
“The monster was the best friend I ever had!” – Boris Karloff
Dracula, the Werewolf, and Frankenstein are well known for terrorizing peasants in the middle of the night. By stealth, by force, or by misinterpretation - all three of these classic monsters wrecked havoc throughout the countryside until brave individuals and angry mobs finally grew exhausted of losing their loved ones and decided to take matters into their own hands. Of course, there was always the “discovery” - where villagers realized something evil was afoot, then tides began to turn and the hunter became the hunted. Good always won because someone decided that action outweighed fear. Since then, many other characters have been added to Hollywood’s repertoire of fear, paranoia, and anxiety -whether it’s Aliens or the Omen, the tactics never end, but they do become more familiar (predictable even).
Not long ago, I stumbled upon an interesting two hundred-something page document entitled “IS-139 Exercise Design” Found on FEMA’s Emergency Management Institute website.
This do-it-yourself course lays out the fundamental methodology of FEMA’s creative side where participants can study at home to become masters of deception while doing it all in the name of “disaster preparedness”. Of course, most flag-waving Americans that read this document will shrug at any hint of wrongdoing but just as in film: Once you see Dracula, you know how vampires bite. Nevertheless, this FEMA document breaks down the learning process into five main activities - beginning with an orientation seminar where participants become familiarized with their individual roles, plans, equipment, and procedures. The next activity is the “drill” where a specific [and important] aspect of the overall emergency management system is singled out for refinement and perfection. An example of conducting an effective drill may be utilizing slides or photographs of a real plane crash to recreate a convincing disaster scenario. The planner then closely monitors the recreated event and the emotional reactions of participants as events unfold to make note of improvements. The third activity in the progression of effective exercise design is called the Tabletop Exercise. The Tabletop Exercise provides a relatively stress-free environment where planners discuss ways to enhance the realism of the final exercise (no official action is taken at this stage) - it’s a little like making a model of a car before building the full- sized car - no resources (ex: medical, police, military) are deployed yet.
After select teams of qualified individuals have succeeded in developing a satisfactory Tabletop Exercise, the fourth activity is known as the Functional Exercise, which is a “Full-simulated interactive exercise that test the capability of an organization to respond to a simulated event” (Exercise Design p.212).
Just like actors taking orders from directors on a film set, this is an interactive exercise that even employs the talents of real actors or “players” who perfect their reactions to planned and sequenced messages given to them by “simulators”. It’s a stressful and complex format where minute details are monitored and controlled. On page 213 of Exercise Design, players and simulators are initially separated – then the use of television, radio, and telephone messages create an essential element of realism. Eighteen months of preparation are needed to create an effective Functional Exercise.
Last but not least, comes the big one - the Full Scale Exercise. In a Full Scale Exercise, events are as real as they get - it’s a “Highly stressful environment that simulates actual response conditions...” (Exercise Design p.215). All entities and response teams are tested in real-time where the use of simulated victims, staged environments and pre-planned media coverage fabricates a “visual narrative” (basically, the center of public attention). This is meant to heighten adrenaline and enhance emotion on all levels. It’s a “trial by fire” – as page 216 puts it. Simulated disasters in the form of burning buildings, WMD’s, plane crashes, and other events are witnessed by whomever the planners want; while policy makers, operatives, and field personnel are all used to make this staged event as believable as possible. If you want to do it right, plan on spending up to one and a half years preparing for a Full Scale Exercise.
As The old saying goes: “Time is money” – these events aren’t cheap and it takes a lot of time to train qualified participants, so naturally there are pros in exercise design. Examples would be The Oak Ridge Institute and the folks at NIMS – short for The National Incident Management System that governs the emergency response in many states.
Just like a good horror film takes a good story, good directing, and good actors to become a box office hit, so does a good disaster. Everyone remembers the movie that scared them most. It’s quite feasible that with so much time, money and energy spent on creating perfect disasters – taking it to the next level would be quite easy. Just like the 7/7 London Bombings in 2005 where a practice disaster was taking place at the exact moment when a real bombing event occurred.
Sometimes the scariest things are hidden in plain sight.
