I know, this is all about preparedness and how to act or handle a crisis, but it makes me laugh when I see "terrorist attack" used over and over
again when discussing such issues.
No, I don't think you know or understand. A terrorist attack is the number one concern among all preparatory agencies. The concern for terrorist
attacks far out ranks any kind of natural weather event. The reason is quite simple-Americans have an amazing ability to put their differences aside
and help each other in local weather events-that rarely need Federal interaction until after the fact with reconstruction.
The coming tornado season is a just example. People are going to die, lives changed by material loss, devastation will occur in entire neighborhoods.
The ability of persons helping each other is part of the healing process-and until after the fact the government stays out of the way.
With terrorist attacks it is the exact opposite. Drills never stop and this time the Governmental response will be swift and prompt-with people
understanding that this fight is not theirs to fight alone.
A lady ask me if the drone she saw come over her house had anything to do with the promptness exercise being practiced by the Guard and other locals.
I told her it did-although I couldn't tell her why.
Except to say that next time-and there will be a next time-things are going to run much smoother than in New York.
