AGENCYWIDE MESSAGE TO ALL NASA EMPLOYEES:

Point of Contact: Darrius Lewis, Mission Support Directorate, NASA Headquarters, 202-358-0608, darrius.l.lewis@nasa.gov

Family/Personal Preparedness Plan

NASA is the only federal agency responsible for its people's safety and well-being here on Earth and in space and has a longtime commitment to safety and emergency preparedness. Over the past year, Administrator Bolden has emphasized the importance of Family/Personal Preparedness for the entire NASA family. Family and personal preparedness plans are key to protecting our families and communities during potential emergencies such as fires, floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, terrorist attacks and other unforeseen catastrophes.


Some sources have this message sent to NASA employees as being sent in the form of an email.


The most important assets in the successful completion of NASA's mission are its people and their loved ones. The agency has developed a set of informational guides designed to prepare you, your families and pets for emergencies. These guides will provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to develop your Family Preparedness Plan.

All employees are encouraged to download these guides, prepare plans, and review them with your families. The agency has taken the steps to prepare our NASA family; now it is your personal obligation to prepare yourself and/or your family for an emergency.

To view Administrator Bolden's video on family preparedness and to download your Family Preparedness guides, visit [url=http://www.nasa.gov/centers/hq/emergency/personalPreparedness/index.html]


Is it just me or is this an odd sense of timing with the recent disasters in the world? (this was sent out to employees today)

The obvious question is Do they know something we don't?

Why is NASA worried about family/personal preparedness plans?!?!?

GREAT post!
And yes, I'd say NASA knows many things we don't...

What was the other message from the CDC recently? The Zombie Apocalypse???

This is getting good...

I wonder if this is the first time this type of memo has been sent out? Strange indeed. What about the rest of the world beyond nasa employees. (oh yeah, they don't care about the useless eaters)

I assume this is a subtle way to tell people that TS will HTF

why the heck is this coming from NASA?

Shouldn't it be coming from FEMA ???

Unless NASA knows something FEMA
does not. hmmmmm

We just got that CDC Warning about
Zombies a couple weeks ago. And now
this ??? Something is up and nobody
is talking.

NASA getting involved leads me to
believe it may be an outer space threat.
Elenin ???

And why would NASA's preparedness plans
be any different than FEMA's ???

Um. Because they want to look out for their employees?


The most important assets in the successful completion of NASA’s mission are our employees’ and their families. We are taking the steps to prepare our workforce, but it is your personal obligation to prepare yourself and your families for emergencies.

I think this may be because of solar maximum, if indeed something happens they can say they were prepared.
Seems like a precaution.

Or it could be because it's hurricane season.

Well.. I live and work here in Florida too.
My work-place sent out a similar message today.

But.. we get those every year.
Because we have HURRICANES here!

We always have to be prepared to evacuate.
In case of a Hurricane is heading our way.

lol, Phage

u know just as well as I do that that is bunk.
NASA does not send out preparedness memos
unless they know something is coming.

Especially ones that contradict FEMA plans.

This is a prime example that the FEMA plans
are not the best plans to follow if NASA is gonna
follow contrary directives for it's employees.

That's why it came out. Bad things happened around the globe and NASA decided to remind their "families" that they have taken steps to ensure that, in the event of a disaster, everyone knows what to do. It's a reaction to the various tragedies.

Just being proactive after the quakes, tornadoes and tsunami. It's like the TSA searching your shoes after someone tries to blow up his shoe.

On the contrary, what they are, most likely doing, is ensuring that, in the event of a catastrophe, their employess aren't fleeing their jobs to make sure their families are safe. If you are at work, in a place the needs you during a crisis, and you are more concerned with your goldfish and your aunt edna, you won't be able to assist in averting any further issues. Thus, they set up a plan for the employees, and their families and, in the event of a catastrophe, they've got an employee who knows that aunt edna and the fish are heading towards the planned safe house or whatever.

Well I may be onto something since you are here
....

Anyhow, you cannot explain this away as "just a company concerned with its employees' well being", come on Phage this is NASA (insert favorite anagram here)...

Highly unusual if you ask me, especially in light of recent events.

Nail on the head


My husband received a similar "memo" and then a briefing a few weeks ago concerning family plans and the base's plan during the NLE. The problem was that sensitive positions will be bussed or flown to an undisclosed location in Mo to carry on with the work they were already doing and in so many words.. the civilian contractors and employees were on their own.. so they had a separate sort of prep info package handed out to those guys.
I dont think any of this is nefarious.. its just business as usual.. as 20+ years of dealing with the gov has shown me!
