I'm just amused by the fact that whenever a government agency tells people to be prepared for an emergency it means they know about some impending disaster. However, as soon as there's a disaster the government gets slammed for not being prepared and not doing enough to have people be prepared.

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



Ok...yes. But isn't it easy enough to now spread such info to "all mankind"? I mean, it sounds a little unconcerned about non-NASA employees.

Still a little creepy even if I'm just paranoid.

I wonder how often do they issue such warnings/preparations?

You didn't look at the link, did you?


I'm smart enough to know hurricanes
don't happen in Colorado


why agency wide?
why not just coastal areas??
this is not hurricane related.

What location is your husband? East, Central or West, if you dont mind me asking.

Anyone know if this was a company wide email or just to specific locations?

the source site looks a little dodgey.

aside from that many large multi-national companies offer training and advice to staff in dealing with disasters. its the norm these days.

even more than 10-15years ago i was doing some training to deal with outlandish emergencies that could happen on site. one course i had to do was what to do if an airplane crashed on site. its the last thing you want to be doing but after i did it i forgot about it. i wasn't walking around waiting for a plane to fall out of the sky.

some people in these companies have little to be doing so they like to create work for themselves contemplating disasters and sending out memos. this was probably somebody in the safety team trying to justify their job.

Well, could be due to the things the husband works with.. but every time a bolt of lightening hits close to the base or there is a local weather advisory he is emailed a memo with a long boring recital of the weather situation and yet another explanation of what to do, where to go if the sirens go off, and of course, a reminder to be sure to turn the gennies on before you shove yourself in the saferoom.
Happens more times than you can really count.

well that's simple

the ones they know about are man made

the ones they don't know about are acts of God

you make it sound like NASA should set up an emergency preparedness plan for everyone in the country. That's ridiculous. They have employees and those employees have families and they want them all to know that, in the event of a disaster, they are all going to be doing whatever they should to survive and continue to function. This isn't a preparedness plan for a texas sized asteroid where everyone will die. This is a "what to do in a hurricane/tornado etc" type plan.

We're in the midwest now. No hurricanes here
He works for the DoD so I dont know who all it goes to as its a large populated base, but I do know that its handled on an individual basis concerning the areas one works in as far as protocol. Its nothing top secret.. or even a secret.. just an emergency plan.
Its not NASA.. but who knows.. maybe this is the new thing to do for other govt agencies since the NLE deal. AS long as we have been involved there have always been briefings and memos concerning emergency plans. Just makes sense to be prepared IMO.

NPR 8715.2 NASA Emergency Preparedness Plan Procedural Requirement

www.hq.nasa.gov...

That was last updated in 2010, originally dated 2009... make what you will of that.

I believe NASA also published some warnings/preparedness plans for solar storms/flares a couple of years back.

That's an interesting conclusion. A little too neat and tidy for reality, but an interesting conclusion, nonetheless.

An equally probable conclusion is that the ones they don't know about are acts of God, and there are none they know about because none are man-made.

It's not just tornados and hurricanes...the exact wording:


potential emergencies such as fires, floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, terrorist attacks and other unforeseen catastrophes.


I still think this is nefarious, but perhaps it could be just government over-lapping money waste programs. But coming from NASA....well, I shouldn't have to explain the skepticism...
