OK...bear with me here. I don't intend for this to prediction thread, nor is this a doom and gloom thread, nor do I think the world is coming to and
That being said, I work for a large, well known, international media company in New York City - I won't divulge the name, but it is very well known.
I work in a remote office in the city, but there is a headquarters building not too far away.
Two events recently occurred within a short period of time that raised my eyebrows.
1. Several days ago the building I work in, which is owned an operated by a separate management company, announced over the fire alarm intercom
instructions if there were to be a biological, chemical or radioactive attack on the city. This was the first time I have heard the announcement be
that specific, normally it is basic fire drill stuff.
2. A couple of days later, my manager handed me a sticker to attach to the back of my ID card with a "Toll Free Emergency Hotline" to call :
...in the event of a New York area emergency for updates on how our operations may have been affected, building accessibility, directions about
alternate work areas and information regarding your department.
The two things combined, one from my company - the other from the building I work in which is NOT owned by my company and all within a few days.
I am writing this to see if anyone in the NY area or in any other large city has received similar warnings.
It is probably a coincidence, but I was curious to see if this is a new city initiative or if someone knows something we don't.
