Well guys I use to be a 911 dispatcher and I know for a fact that in our county it is done once a week.
Just this week it has happened in my area at least five times. Now that is five times that I or my daughter have seen and we don't have the tv on THAT much.
It happened this morning at about 7:30....has NEVER happened at this time before. I know, because my daughter always has certain shows on in the morning when she is getting ready for school.
It broke into a show last night.
It broke into a rented movie (on demand) the night before. It happened late morning that same day.
My daughter has seen it at least two other times.
Each time it is from a different county on my half of the State.
I have NEVER seen this before in my 30+ years living in Washington State.
My 11 year old even commented this morning that she wondered why they were doing it and if they thought something was going to happen?
Well, I told her they just have to test it. But YES....I really. really do think that something is going to happen. I believe that orders most likely came from FEMA for ALL counties to run a test of the EMS NOW. With everything else that is going on, this is just one more VERY scary dot in the picture.
Awareness and prep training all of a sudden? BS
ETA: To get on here now and see reports coming from all over the country of the same thing happening? Making my skin crawl...seriously.edit on 10-3-2011 by westcoast because: (no reason given)
