The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) on the anniversary of the January 6th riots, is gathering feedback from a seminar they are holding, to know how participants feel about its planned response in the event of nuclear detonation in America.
“National Engagement Seminars for Planning Guidance for Response to a Nuclear Detonation will provide an overview for considerations, planning factors, and available resources, to craft a successful response plan for nuclear detonations. We’ll provide updates on guidance for a wider range of nuclear detonations, including larger detonations and air bursts,” FEMA stated on its website.
FEMA will also be giving seminar participants a 241-page guide on the U.S response called “Planning Guidance for Response to a Nuclear Detonation” – this describes various possibilities that could happen 24 to 72 hours after a nuclear attack, all hypothetical of course.
“If a nuclear detonation occurred in an American city, it would be one of the most catastrophic incidents the United States (US) has ever experienced. Responders must be prepared to address the unique challenges of a nuclear response. With careful planning, many— if not most— lives can be saved,” the document states.
“Additionally, preparing and planning for nuclear detonations better equips your community for other natural and man-made hazards/disasters, such as fire-spread, hurricanes, earthquakes, and radiological incidents.”
“This document describes the considerations, planning factors, and available resources to craft a successful nuclear detonation response plan. The focus of this document is on the first 24 to 72 hours after a detonation, when early actions can save many lives,” FEMA adds.
In the foreword of FEMA’s guide, it states:
The First Edition of this planning guidance focused on a small nuclear detonation at ground level in an urban environment—specifically National Planning Scenario
The Second Edition provided updated
terminology, added the concept of the Hot Zone (HZ), and added a chapter specifically to address public preparedness and emergency public communications in the post-detonation environment.
This third edition has been updated and expanded to provide guidance for a wider range of nuclear detonations, including larger detonations and air bursts, incorporates new research, best practices, and response resources. Additionally, this version of the planning guidance includes a new chapter on the Integrated Public Alert & Warning System (IPAWS), which enables state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) officials to send warnings and key messages during the response.
Numerous agencies including the Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) office, the Departments of Energy (DOE), Health and Human Services (HHS), Homeland Security (DHS), Department of Defense (DoD), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) – were all involved in developing this guide.
China has recently made threats of nuclear war on U.S Allie, Japan. China is also flexing its military muscle at Taiwan, who China desperately wants back under communist Chinese rule. The timing of this guide, is interesting to say the least.
One thing is for sure, nuclear war would not be good for anyone, anywhere. In the event a foreign adversary were to send a nuclear missile towards the United States, there’s no doubt there would be one sent back in response. In such a scenario, millions, perhaps even billions will perish.
Another thing to consider, whenever government agencies start drawing up plans for hypothetical situations and how they would respond – just like they when Anthony Fauci warned that Americans should be prepared for a ‘deadly pandemic’ – it’s time to get your house in order.
