WAY TO GO MEDFORD FIRE AND RESCUE - Which conducted a training drill at the old downtown federal building yesterday. Lots of smoke generated in a drill designed to see how well they could clear smoke from a building. What was really admirable was how MFD made sure people knew what was going on, keeping down any possible panic from the folks. Contrast this with the military conducting an anti-terrorism drill in Miami, FL, the other day. Blackhawk helicopters firing .50 cal machine gun blanks. They really freaked people out. (Although I suspect this has more to do with the feds softening the sheep up over heightened military presence.)
Here's to hoping I'm wrong, and that these units are merely filled with a bunch of incompetent police-state morons.
