Viewed a report on Fox News yesterday about with the current N.Korean stuff going on that the State of Hawaii is now prepping for a nuclear scenario. It seems that they have let the Cold War preps lapse into limbo and much of the infrastructure is either lost/forgotten or in disarray.
I would say that around here it is that way as well. The only effort around here is the yearly TMI exercise that really only lasts @ 3-4 hours. Listening to my scanner tells me that things are really bad for responders since the local Ham in charge is "importing" volunteers. 5-10 years ago - people had to be turned away from volunteering. Equipment has been moved/lost and/or misplaced.
Supposedly, N. Korea has stuff that could hit the Left Coast but the Loons there do not seem to care or be worried. What a shame of how they turned that beautiful part of the Country into Loony Haven !
