9.11 More than terrorism

September 11, 2001 taught responders and emergency planners many lessons. There are many more to learn. Its important for us to look at all hazards; natural, man made, and technological as if they have the same potential as an intentional terrorist attack. This video underscores that importance.

I hope that in the wake of ten years in the post 9-11 era we will realize that public health, emergency medical service, and other traditional response agencies deserve our support. I also hope that we'll realize that mother nature can cause devastation on a scale that dwarfs terrorism.

Its time to stop living in the post 9-11 era and start training in the Pre-insert next event here-era.
