Without addressing Sandy

Without addressing Sandy Hook, the very fact that there is an expressed need for these drills and exercises, in response to perceived domestic disaster and terrorism threats, illustrates the obvious need for the ability to protect one's self and others. The first responders are the humans at the scene of the incident. The official government response is second. We can't pause real life incidents to wait for whomever is sent by 911.
