Here is a link for North Hills Hospital in the state of Texas, where a large emergency drill was planned to occur on Thursday-
Emergency Drill Planned for Day of Explosion
North Hills Hospital is proud to be hosting one of the largest emergency preparedness drills ever held in the state of Texas this week. We will be
partnering with the North Central Texas Trauma Regional Advisory Council (NCTTRAC) and first responders from throughout North Texas to test our
equipment and processes so that when a real disaster happens, we’re all ready to respond.
This drill is even timelier in the wake of the bombings at Monday’s Boston Marathon. Our prayers go out to the victims involved, and we are proud of
the first responders – EMS, fire, police, race workers, and hospital staff - who so bravely cared for the injured.
If you live near North Hills Hospital, you will see a lot of activity in our parking lots over the next three days as the NCTTRAC sets up a mobile
140-bed hospital, along with dozens of ambulances, several AMBUS (multi-patient ambulances), and helicopters. This is only a drill and will simulate a
hospital evacuation, something that might be necessary in the event of a tornado, hurricane, earthquake, or prolonged power failure.
Set-up for the drill will take place Tuesday and Wednesday, with the drill occurring on Thursday.
How can it be that drills are set up for so many events that happen, from 9/11 to 7/7, even the Boston Bombings...the coincidences mounting up over
the years is incredible.
Toastyr brought this to our attention, I thought the info warranted a thread of its own!
They have since updated the message-
Update on the drill (posted 4/18): Due to the events in West, Texas last night, North Hills Hospital and the NCTTRAC have chosen to cancel today’s
emergency preparedness drill. Many of the same resources planned for the drill have already deployed to West to help care for the victims down
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims, loved ones, and first responders affected by this terrible tragedy.
Just one more very strange coincidence?
