National Guard drill at high school to prepare for possible H1N1 riot

"What Is Going On In America ?"


PARIS Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School will be the site of a National Guard riot control drill Thursday morning to prepare in the event of a panic over distribution of serum to treat the swine flu.

The school on Route 26 at the Paris-Norway town line has been designated by state officials as a distribution site for the H1N1 flu vaccine. The drill is to prepare for a worst-case scenario should the serum have to be transported from Augusta and people rush to get it.

On Thursday morning, four or five National Guard Humvees will travel from Augusta to Paris with vials of fake serum. The National Guardsmen will take on the roles of panicked citizens and military police and practice what they would do, such as using tear gas, in the case of a riot.

"This is just a component of moving the stuff from point A to B," said Oxford County Emergency Management Agency Director Scott Parker. The plan will be put into place only if needed, he said.

Plans were developed in April to have vials of serum sent from the federal government to Augusta, Parker said. From Augusta, the supplies will be transported to designated distribution centers.

During the April conference, concerns were raised about a possible out-of-control rush on the serum, Parker said. Because of that concern, Gov. John Baldacci and Gen. John Libby, adjutant general of the Maine National Guard, agreed that a plan should be devised to quell such a disturbance.

Local police chiefs have also been involved in the planning, Parker said. In a real event, local police would be in charge of security once the serum arrives in Paris. "We own it. We're in charge of providing security," he said.

As of Aug. 5, the Maine Center for Disease Control said there had been 323 confirmed cases of H1N1 in Maine, of which 176 are Maine residents and the rest out-of-staters diagnosed in Maine. A total of 19 people required hospitalization. Sixty percent of the victims were under the age of 25.

On Tuesday, health authorities reported Maine's first death from the H1N1 virus. Dr. Dora Anne Mills, director of the Maine Center for Disease Control, said a York County man in his 50s was hospitalized for three weeks and died last week of underlying conditions complicated by H1N1.

The drill will take place behind the school and will not affect the day-to-day activities within the school. Access to the school building will be available through the main entrance, Parker said.

Nobody in this country has ever gone through a widespread mass casualty event before, let alone a pandemic inspired one. Effing A they are practicing riot control. Because people are fucking stupid and people like me that are going to be working support effots don't wan't to die because assholes panicking in a crowd decide there MUST be more of something "hidden" someplace.

Pediatric fatalities this last September were equal to the rate for the entirety of last year. No-one has seen a virus like this in 90 years and it is already mutatin into drug resistant forms.

This thing is nowhere CLOSE to having run it's course yet and the idiots babbling about how it is being blown out of perportion have no fuckin' clue. Seriously.

I'm hearing the epidemic reached it's peak one week ago. The show will be over soon.

I'm hearing the epidemic reached it's peak one week ago. The show will be over soon.

A flu epidemic will last three or four years as the bug makes it's rounds and the antigens shift from generation to generation and different versions of it have antigens drift and form new varients. The pandemic in 1919 took 5 or 6 years to play out.

If enough people build up immunities before the virus shifts into it's next form we will ge a leg up and it will peter out. If it shifts before that happens then we get more cases and casualties. That is what has happened right now. It is shifting before people can get immunities built up. It's better to get it now when it is in less virulent form because you will have some immunity to the later strains. There is a saturation point where the maximum number of victims and cases will be reached before the numbers sort out and balance.

We are NOWHERE near that saturation point and I can tell you that friends that work for the CDC and in the military health commands as well as friends on the civilian side in medicine and disaster preparedness are scared shitless.

Picture a slow motion car accident that eventually involves 60 or 70 cars. Right now you are seeing the first few cars begining to skid and collide.

Why would you need ID to get vaccinated at a mass vaccination?

Why would you need ID to get vaccinated at a mass vaccination?

To prevent ilegal aliens from getting shots and to identify who has already been vaccinated because there are people who are stupid enought to try to do it multiple times believing more is better and the dosages are limited
