NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - The New York City Department of Health conducted a massive emergency preparedness drill at 30 facilities across the city on Friday.

They tested the delivery of emergency medications in the event of a biological attack, such as anthrax, or other large-scale public health emergency in the city. The majority of the deliveries will take place to public school buildings.

It's the largest surprise drill in the city's history. The drill was scheduled to take place from approximately 6:30 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. The majority of participants were given no notice to better test and simulate a real emergency and response.

Obi-wan has taught you well.

Yep, my thought exactly.

Prepping the public psychology for the big False Flag.

Give these people the benefit of the doubt for a microsecond and YOU WILL BE SORRY.

Shame me once, shame on me…

Well. You know the rest.

Then Mayor Wilhelm requested 1000s of illegal aliens to come to NYC so they could do it for real.

My ebola drill calls for an RV, and 6 months in the Mojave desert to wait for it to burn out.

"The city says it will not share the results of the test due to security concerns. The Health Department says it will use the results to make policy and operational changes to its emergency response plan."

gee, between a few orchestrated nuke attacks and the fact that this fraud regime seems to be setting the stage for deadly diseases to be unleashed on us, we won’t need to be concerned about keeping any of our freedoms. Of course those in DC have built themselves underground facilities to keep them and their families alive long after the rest of us are dead from the carnage they have caused.

Unlikely a drill for Ebola. These things take months of coordination to set up

If there is a real epidemic it will be kept a secret as long as possible. A fake one for political reasons will be marketed like fast food...(/tinfoil)

It is a good idea. We practice for a lot of disasters. Kind of wondering about using the word “massive”.

“nah ebola wont be a problem for the US. Not even worth a mention.”

Is tha why 0bama signed an EO yesterday empowering federal agencies to quarantine and arrest, if necessary, citizens showing signs of respiratory disease?

Did y’all just see the CBS evening news on ebola just now?!? O - M - G!!!!! The idiot was all warm and fuzzy over it and said if it did get loose in the US it wouldn’t spread very far. Basically, because we’re so much smarter than Africans. Yo, dude, don’t go into politics. Uh, yeah, no worries unless you’re one of those it spread just far enough to infect. He went on to claim it was spread in Africa because family members are allowed about the patient and they get contaminated through funeral preparations. Yada, yada but no explaination why so MANY health care workers are being infected and dying.

CBS confirmed the plane bringing Nancy Writebol will turn around and bring back Dr. Brantly. What could possibly go wrong.

No. Absolutely not! There should never be any sort of drills or preparedness practice scenarios acted out. That includes everything from fire drills in schools and nursing homes and HAZMAT drills in factories, lifeguard training where the lifeguards take turns pretending to be the drowning victim, all the way up to what they do at nuclear facilities, like testing the sirens and drilling for what they might have to do if all the alarms suddenly go off. Hospitals and first responders shouldn’t ever practice for a mass casualty event nor should those in public health department every practice and test the delivery systems of medical supplies during a biological attack or large scale communicable disease outbreak, just as those who live in tornado alley shouldn’t worry about preparing for an outbreak of tornados, those living along the East or Gulf Coast – hurricanes, those in an earthquake and or tsunami zone…

We should all just wait until something really bad happens and then just figure it out as we go.

Besides that way people could post on internet forums complaining about how short sighted it was that nobody ever thought to prepare and practice for such a scenario and what idiots there were for not doing so. Of course then there will be the people who will claim, no matter the facts in evidence, that a very real disaster was just a “false flag”.

I certainly do. I’ve participated in them in fact. Very informative.

I would not argue with a quarantine in the world of Idiocracy we live in today.
Sick people would just continue to run around until they dropped dead, while
spreading the disease, and they wouldn't give a crap.
People are damn stupid out there.

Duh...trip the alarms, and weld the doors shut. Problem solved.

Won’t matter when the Malaysian plane that disappeared, reappears as another airliner loaded with a nuclear payload. City gone.

That’s a great idea but the rest of us may be too busy trying to stay alive to worry about the DC scum if it come to that
