Simulated drills are good training tools. But if you really want to assess preparedness hold one with out announcing in advance your going to hold it.

So true however when you were going to school did you ever have fire drills? Well consider this one of those. Study for your final exam because you'll most likely have only one chance to get a passing grade. Good luck!

Hey Folks,

Did you ever consider what it might be like if such a drill was not announced in advance? It can be a lot of freaky. Been there, done that, got the teeshirt. I am a CERT member. The last thing we want to do is freak out the nieghborhood (wherever it is). Relax and go with the flow. Being a little thankful might help too.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
