Good news? Bad news? It'll probably happen, and there's nothing we can do about it, but we're resilient? Comforting? Not so much.
Some folks know of my less-than-love-affair with ICS, so I appreciated @Eric_Holdeman's post on it from earlier this week.
The point that perked my ears? If you don't use ICS all the time, don't use it in an emergency. Seems common sense to me.
Sobering news from the EMS world. Undertrained and unprepared is no way to go through life when CBRN incidents are an ever-present threat.
Not to mention the toll it must play on first responders minds – knowing that this could very likely happen (which 72% believe), and believing that you're wholly unprepared (15% feel very confident about their department's response) – what a terribly stressful way to have to work.
