play war games!
This is the main daily activity of the approximately 240 people who work at Mount Weather. The games are intended to train the Mount Weather
bureaucracy to managing a wide range of problems associated with both war and domestic political crises.
Decisions are made in the "Situation Room," the base's nerve center, located in the core of Mount Weather. The Situation Room is the archetypal war
room, with "charts, maps and whatever visuals may be needed" and "batteries of communications equipment connecting Mount Weather with the White
House and 'Raven Rock'--the underground Pentagon sixty miles north of Washington--as well as with almost every US military unit stationed around the
globe," according to the Progressive article. "All internal communications are conducted by closed-circuit color television ... senior officers and
'Cabinet members' have two consoles recessed in the walls of their office."
Descriptions of the war games read a bit like a Ian Fleming novel. Every year there is a system-wide alert that "includes all military and
civilian-run underground installations." The real, aboveground President and his Cabinet members are "relocated" to Mount Weather to observe the
simulation. Post-mortems are conducted and the margins for error are calculated after the games. All the data is studied and documented. Maintain and
Update the "Survivors List"
Using all the data generated by the war games and domestic crisis scenarios, the facility continually maintains and updates a list of names and
addresses of people deemed to be "vital" to the survival of the nation, or who can "assist essential and non-interruptible services." In the 1976
article, the "survivors list" contained 6,500 names, but even that was deemed to be low.
err hope im on that list!!!
