Where did the month go? Here in Indianapolis we have made progress in so many ways. We participated in the BIOHAZARD DETECTION SYSTEM EXERCISE:
under the direction of
Volunteer Clients Role:
Clients provide a valuable element in the exercise process, providing the players with a level of realism that cannot be simulated without actual people. This particular exercise has you playing the role of a USPS employee who through simulation has been possibly exposed to anthrax. It is important to understand that this particular agent DOES NOT have an immediate impact on your physical health and can be mitigated by receiving medication. In order to ensure that you will not contaminate others (simulated), some of you (identified prior to the exercise) will physically go through a wet decontamination process at the USPS site. The remainder of you will only simulate having been decontaminated at the USPS site. After the decontamination process, you all will be transported off-site to a Point of Dispensing (POD) to go through the medication delivery process.
We await a response from their PIO as to what we can talk about and share with others as we where not allowed to take photos, facebook, twitter etc., during the event. More to come
We have made contact with new members of CEN Indy because of Cherryl Bundy's donation of starting a meet up group. http://www.meetup.com/Christian-Emergency-Network-Indianapolis/ sure could use some more members wink wink
I was invited to speak at LRM's Disaster Response Training Session along with Honnalora Hubbard. I was also contacted by Terry Wildman of Chaplain Fellowship Ministires Inc. this month so I asked him to join us for LRM's Session in Litchfield, Illinois. What a blessing for it all to work out. At the session I met John Benjamin Peters Director of National Mobilization of Intercessors for America and Bishop Chuck Ferrell.
I pray for all of the powerful people of God that we met and the 21 churches represented at the training. May the leaders arise for days such as these. It is my prayer that God allows them to be part of our event on September 1st. As speakers and teachers. May the details be few and fellowship high.
Thanks to Jeremy Olson we have great documentation of the event. I will post is comments and photos of the event in litchfield Illinois
