I for one would be ultra pissed if my local and national news feeds were clogged up with numerous reports about TRAINING exercises, which probably number in the hundreds every year.

We do understand the bad rap...and it is deserved for sure for TPTB for failing in Katrina. But, its us the responders that want to do this, and train, and certify and practice scenarios. And its because even in these disasters and possibly injuries to ourselves...we want to do this. We feel the need to represent, help, assure, and direct those others in times of need.
Still...we get it that they may feel the way they do. Its just that a lot of that flack is undeserving....edit on 06-10-2010 by mysterioustranger because: change
