I just received information to "stand-by" around April for a one-time phone call to deploy for this drill. No warning, no preview, just the call to test readiness and response time for team Members. We do this occasionally, but this is a 1st for the area, and timing is a bit strange.

Still, even so, as a FEMA responder, Ill always pass what I know, when I know it.We gotta take care of ourselves.

Thank you. This is much appreciated. It's always good to know what these guys are up to ahead of time when possible. Please keep us posted. S&F!

BTW. You may want to change your headline to New Madrid instead of New Madras.

Thank you for the info. Just 1 question.
Why is the timing odd?

The timing is not really "odd". It's a major anniversary for the event. It brings it to the forefront again. And is being used to help show what the area effected might be and what kind of preparations would be needed.
I think it's a great idea. Had similar planning been done should a hurricane hit Louisiana, think of the problems that would have been eliminated.
The real problem is we don't know the when, nor even the where these disasters will hit....except in areas affected by the NMF. When and if it comes, perhaps help for those involved will be better managed.

Actually, FEMA did make plans for New Orleans. A year ahead of time. Didn't work out any better than if they had done nothing, IMO. This is just one article related to it. They also had a FEMA booklet years before that listed this as a possibility. Wish I could find it. If I do, I'll post it in the thread.


Last summer, having identified a hurricane hitting New Orleans as one of the gravest potential disasters faced by the US public, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) staged a mock storm scenario and brought dozens of government agencies together for planning.

Last summer being 2004. Fema Planned...

May was what I understood. I wonder if this is a test the month prior to when it is actually scheduled or if the schedule has been advanced due to current events.

DHS/FEMA/CERT Refers to it in plural MADRAS-Fault, and other times MADRID-Fault . Both are acceptable, and refers equally. I believe it refers indifferently to all the tiny faults along it. Meaning "those that are considered part of the New Madrid Fault-line(s)"

Anytime I get any info...Ill be shooting an arrow this way. Hey. It may be the only heads-up you'll get!

So what is this for? Is there going to be a huge curry disaster or something? As long as they stock up on toilet paper they should be okay - oh wait...ohhh earthquake. Ah, I get it now.

"This" is for Disaster Prepardness for the Team members in case of...or the event of...an Emergency Disaster situation. Would you have us perform NO training?

If I was in your neighborhood during one...I bet dollars to donuts you'd run to me for help...because I'd be the one there to give it...and still...I'd be the last one they load onto the train for the FEMA camps! That, I expect...
