The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is due to report on the state of Iranâ€™s nuclear capabilities on November 8, and that assessment is likely to influence Israelâ€™s decision.
I'm a 'certified' CERT member. 'Certified emergency response team'
I took all the training with the thought I may be able to help out in my small town.
I resigned from the team when it became clear we would be used as a TSA pawn at least in my view.
I am still on the email list and just received this.....
"CERT members are needed for the state-wide decontamination drill that is being conducted by the hospital this Friday, Nov 4. Eight additional CERT members are needed to supplement the CERT members that already are assigned. These 8 members will be security at the hospital to control access to the hospital and decontamination areas. Reporting time will be by 9:00 am at the CERT trailer that will be parked on the north end of the hospital parking area. The event will last until noon. Payson Fire and Police will be part of the drill. This is a very important drill for us and the first time we have been invited to a state wide drill. Grant Smith will be the team captain and will check you in at the CERT trailer at 9:00 am sharp. You will need to park your cars in the north parking lot of the LDS church located just south of the hospital and walk around the hospital to the CERT trailer. Bring your badge (mandatory), CERT vest and hat, water. NOTE: We
need to be disciplined and comply exactly with the orders of the team captain (Grant Smith). Do not come if you can't follow orders. We have to be disciplined so we don't fail the drill. Notify Roger by phone or email him by 7:00 pm Wednesday night if you can be there. We have to report our people to the hospital by Thursday am. The hospital is really depending on CERT support to pass the drill. And another surprise: The CERT trailer has almost completed remodeling! Certain CERT people have been working very hard to get it ready for this drill. They are awesome! Let me know if you can join the security team. Thanks for all that each of you do for the community"
All this and the upcoming EAS media take over.......interesting...
