FEMA to stage massive drill at Pennsylvania amusement park today
May 13, 2013
Just a heads up: Since the government likes to stage drills at the same time as real catastrophic events – Sandy Hook and the Boston bombing are the most recent – it is a good idea to note a massive FEMA drill that will occur on May 13, 2013, in Pennsylvania.
The following appeared on May 4:
It’s no secret that whenever tragedy has struck in America recently, the federal government was conducting large-scale disaster preparedness drills nearby. From the Newtown shooting to the Boston bombing to the chemical plant explosion in West, Texas, the folks at FEMA have an uncanny track record of popping up a few miles away from disasters, mere hours before the tragedy develops.
On May 13, hundreds of emergency responders within FEMA’s Region III jurisdiction will descend upon Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom near Allentown, effectively turning the entire Lehigh Valley region of eastern Pennsylvania into a mock scene of mass casualties. The Allentown Morning Call states:
“With the terror of the Boston Marathon fresh in mind, Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom will be the site of a large-scale emergency preparedness drill on May 13.
The drill, sponsored by the Northeast Pennsylvania Regional Counter Terrorism Task Force, will center on an emergency incident at the amusement park in South Whitehall Township, replicating “a hazardous condition with multiple casualties during the peak of the park’s summer season.”
