Whoa-- This facility sounds absolutely amazing!I hope all local
CERT Teams will be invited there to go through some training. (will they??)
I'd LOVE to train in a top-flight facility like this with my CERT Team.Kudos to IHC, LDS Hospital, and the visionary leaders who developed this
preparedness center, funded it and operate it. Great success to you all.
Who is paying for this? We The People?
Now Pete1215, don't throw a wet blanket on this government money being
passed around. That's not civil, you know.Actually, it reminds me of
my days at the Utah Department of Health in 1977. We were assigned to find and
inventory the Packaged Disaster Hospitals (PDHs) that the feds just gave to the
State. They were supposedly stashed around Utah, containing tents, lights,
cots, generators and other supplies ready to go in an emergency. Civil defense
stuff for the "village."Well, there wasn't much left. We
inspected the basement of an elementary school and an old fire station in
downtown Sandy. The generators were gone as well as the cots. Vandals had torn
everything else up looking for drugs.I'm sure the PDH program was
fodder for the spin machine in its day, too.
