This past September myself and a friend from work traveled to Socorro, NM for a class on responding to terrorist bombings. I won’t go into a lot of background on the class, as that is covered in the video below.
Yesterday, they sent us two DVDs of our class and national news broadcasts about the class. I’m only including one news broadcast, the shortest one, as they are large files. There are quite a bit of videos and I haven’t watched everyone yet. This first one I will share here is a national news broadcasts about the class from 2001. In the future we’ll see what else they have on these DVDs.
A statement made by someone in the class in this first one is right on. “Failing to prepare, is preparing for failure.” In fact, we talked about this over dinner a few weeks ago. Natural disasters happen everywhere in this country. Another terrorist act will occur in this country, and it won’t be terrorists flying planes into buildings. If you don’t think it can happen to you, if you don’t think there is evil in this world that wants to hurt you, then you are failing yourself and your family. You will be a victim.
Failing to prepare, is preparing for failure.
