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!

EDIT---

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 there.

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?

With respect...maybe nothing more than coincidence. As it was probably planned some time ago ?

Yes, because a hospital evacuation drill is the perfect cover for a fertiliser plant explosion...

Having listened to the police scanner throughout the entire event last night, and knowing that a fire was started prior to the explosion, I think it is safe to say that this is just a coincidence. I can't see a fertilizer plant in a farming town in Texas being a target.

Evacuation was only part of the drill, it was, as stated, the largest planned emergency drill EVER in the state of Texas.

It is an incredible coincidence.

You can't? Really? You do know that fertilizer is used to make bombs. I hope they can determine if any of it went missing prior to the fire and subsequent explosions. It would be a shame if they discover that a truckload(s) are missing..........if they even CAN after such horrific devastation.

Interesting to take note of. Although it might just be that our emergency services have long held too many drills that do not seem to effectively prevent any disasters. How about the largest OSHA investigation into fertilizer plant drill...we don't see any of those going on.

Hard to fathom but so much money from the Department of Homeland Security has gone to local agencies to make the amount of drills possible....yes it is all suspect but certainly possible that a drill happens to coincide with with some catastrophic event...

Hospitals in Connecticut prepare for disasters with frequent drills
They do drills all the time in the US.
It's only a big deal on conspiracy sites.,

Where's the source for the Boston drill?

There was also a major drill in Charlotte the day after the marathon, they simulated a bomb going off in a packed stadium.

That seems a lot more viable than a fertiliser plant....

some high up mucky muck just said its the same kind of explosive as used in several bombings that we know were false flags on the bbc


and Samy not all explosions kill people but some of them do
so you are saying that because of that there is no such thing as an explosion

no one died at the drills you mentioned

again thanx for your help

Exactly. There are drills taking place somewhere or other most days. It's inevitable that sooner or later one or more will coincide with a real emergency. The odds of it happening are about the same as the odds of heavy rain occurring in the USA on the same day someone buys an umbrella.

Just to play "devil's advocate" for a moment...

What say you are whacked out on SSRIs and decide that blowing people up is your thing... AND you are a conspiracy theory minded sort of person... what better way to throw a wrench in the works than to orchestrate your explosion to coincide with a publicly announced mass casualty drill. It's a 2-fer.

My source on that is ATS. One of the umphteen posts in the last few days, not sure which thread. Runners were being told not to panic because it was all just a drill. I doubt you'll find much in print about it because someone decided it looked suspicious and redacted the info. Because of the whole "previous knowledge of attack" issue of course.

Convenient.

So why wasn't the details of this hospital drill redacted?

Now that's actually a logical argument
Whilst I doubt it happens, it's certainly a possibility to consider and IMO more likely that the massive everyone-is-in-it conspiracy theory

Well I guess the next time your work decides to hold an emergency drill, TAKE THE DAY OFF!

y'know, incase another coincidence happens
