You haven't seen training like this before, because they didn't train like that before. This is a change in the training program to provide more
realistic training to the responders. It helps them gain a better understanding of the environment they will be working in. Table top exercises are
nice and give you the basic understanding of what and how you will respond, but hands on, out in the field training really show the limitations .
Let's say, for the sake of argument, that there is an ELE headed our way in the near future (21DEC12) and the gov't knows all about it. Well, I
agree, they probably would withhold the information because people, such as those posting on this board, would panic. Services would breakdown, folks
would stop going to work, etc...mass chaos. Roads jammed with those headed for their "secret" cabins and bunkers up in them there hills.
So, the gov't, in response to this ELE and in trying to keep it secret, hold drills? Why would they hold drills? What would be the purpose of
holding a drill, in plain site of the populace, in anticipation of an ELE? Extinction Level Event means, well, the end of life...all life! Those
responders wouldn't be alive to respond because they've been killed in the ELE.
The logic is not there. Why stockpile body bags and waste money on "FEMA Camps" when they won't survive the cataclysm that is descending upon us.
Logic is telling me that they are holding drills so they don't get caught with their pants down again. So responders know what to do in the event of
a disaster, how to communicate with fellow responders and know what each agencies role.
