Are We Prepared?

In light of the CTA fire and watching the Bombay train bombings (coverage from India Channel 2, Channel 7, and Sun Times), is anyone prepared to say that this City and it's public safety Departments are prepared for a disaster of epic proportions?

Granted, response gets better as time goes on. People on scene and with the ability to make a decision realize, "Hey we better get tow trucks here." Or "Maybe we ought to redirect a bit of this traffic another direction." Or whatever.

But it's not something you can shut down a major city for and practice on a busy weekday. You can make scenarios and plans all you want, but any military veteran (which we are not) can tell you that "no plan survives first contact with the enemy" and students of literature (which we pretend to be) can relate the "best laid plans of mice and men..."

In a disaster, nothing ever works as planned or practiced. And we don't seem to be practicing much - so either we'll be contributing mightily to the chaos or it'll be the best run disaster in the history of the world.

Scenario:
A dirty bomb is detonated during lunch hour near the Sears Tower. Hundreds are killed instantly. A large swath of the south side of the Sears Tower is obliterated. 311 S. Wacker is severely damaged and is near collapse. Pandemonium breaks out and a citywide plan goes into effect. CPD units are pulled into 001 from all over the city. Radiation levels downtown are presumed high - possibly deadly but no one has a geiger counter to test radiation levels. Putting aside personal safety, CPD and CFD personnel flood the area to help the survivors and to collect the dead.
CPD units in outlying districts are dedicated to traffic control to help with the outflow of cars that are trying desperately to get out of the city. Radio traffic is heavy - CW1, 2 and 5 are flooded with calls.
With all this going on - what would you hear on Zone12?
2523: "Squad, hold us down on traffic control at Belmont/Milwaukee. Westbound traffic is blocked because the signal's out."
ZONE: "2523 we are in a backlog! I have a loud music disturbance in the 1800blk of Harding, I have a domestic over the time limit and an auto accident (PD only). I got jobs on this board that need to be cleared!"

most plans go to shit BUT if your first responders are well trained, equiped and supplied you will be able to successfully field modify your plan.
training, eqipment and supply....not exactly strong points of the cpd.

The first responders from 001, 018 and 012 will die in such an event. SOS has the equippment and training to rescue those dead or dieing police officers who have only watched a streaming video.

Are we prepared?! Only by the seat of our pants.

If something like Rue happens best plan is to set up a perimeter and wait for the folks with the gear to go in.

And wheres the perimeter? Who is going to determine how far dirty bomb radiation will spread? Can you say Chernobyl (sp?) First responders died in droves no equipment, no info,and no direction from above. Sound familiar? Maybe the radiation will at least get to 15th and indiana.

It goes beyond planning. Not to state (reiterate) the obvious, but you have to have bosses with the sense to make whatever decisions are necessary and not fear whether such decisions are within their authority.

There really just aren't many (maybe more than 2 or 3) exempts in the entire police department with the right mindset for commanding a response to such indicents.

Folks, a "dirty" bomb is the least of our worries. Casualties would come from the actual bomb blast and not the miniscule exposure to radiation. You get it worse from getting x-rays and such. Releasing the contents of a hijacked tanker full of a nasty chemical agent is a horse of another color. Dirty bombs are more of a psychological weapon, if you will.

The only thing we need to be ready for is.....to hear the bullshit excuses strewn about by Daley and Phat Phil:
I didnt know there was such a thing as a 'dirty bomb'
I thought a dirty bomb was filled with mud
Its not the city's job to protect us from terrorists
What do you want me to do about it?

And Phat Phil:
Dirty Bomb? What we need to do is increase patrols on the west side, give them more police service.
Effective immediately we will be putting all of the headquarters personnel in plain clothes one day a week to walk around downtown and look for terrorists (which means go shopping)
R&D has tested out a new bio-hazard suit which the city will grossly overpay for and will be utterly useless.
We have placed a curfew on terrorists. Any terrorist which is caught will be immediately issued an AVOV (later found to be illegal and the city ends up paying millions to terrorists for civil rights violations)

Pretty effective, huh!

The city is not prepared for even a relativley small crisis. They have spent millions on emergency preparedness mostly consisting of giving old CFD and CPD bosses high paying jobs. Did any of you get the "gas masks" they handed out a few years ago? Probably left over from the '68 convention and totally useless, what good would those be in a chemical attack? Is polyester anthrax proof? Whew, thank God, I was worried there for a while. I remember asking a supervisor what are we supposed to do with these outdated masks, he said keep it in your locker and if something happens, come in and get it...if that happens, I WILL come in, get my car and get the heck out of there, go protect MY family look for my star in the parking lot.

No were not prepared, the interior aka inside back up if all shit hit's the fan, has limited personnel who have been instructed via Karl Video Parade March and a few gen orders strewn about the desk tops. Then again maybe their covering boss's had a chat via of phone with their boss, who had a blackberry text frenzy with their boss who may have gotten some type of info. from a koolaid social. Hell the fort can't even keep up with manpower. Why did Daley go to Israel with baby Hube, he already had the art of cement down. Well, we will at least have a few of those silly gate arms to activate and hold the citizen's back on the highway's. Just not sure if it's to keep them in or out in an attack. At the least the City can guarantee the biggest traffic grid lock with chaos in their history archieve's, which will have drawing's from a special grant going to the new Fenger Charter Multi-National all level Liberal Art's School. Which will be housed for display at the new Daley Art Library to be built later in rememberance, in the city built by a special grant provided by the Hubberman Grant known as the Daley KingDoomed. We will be jolly well.

This training is a joke. The instructors there are to work M-F days (most have 5 yeears on job). They show movies and talk nonsense. The final two days are filled with filler about traffic pursuits, etc that the Dept wanted us to re-learn. A absolute joke. I watched one instructor study for the sergeants exam in the back office while we watched movies. We then did a drill about a school violence plan and I asked what is the Department's official response on how to handle this situation, and the instructor (MP) said he didn't know and that we should do our best. There is your training in a nutshell, do your best. Joke.

The supervisors may not be able to force a person to work, but they sure as hell can make life miserable for someone if they want to. That is, if the supervisor chooses to do his/her job and not just be as lazy as the problem copper.

Well, after doing the Miscellaneous Incident Exception Card ADS Sandra K. Day (Operational Services)arrived and demanded Detectives. A call to the A/1 was met with, no detectives are need and none are coming out. ADS Day called C.O. Walsh of A-1 who ordered a team of Detectives sent out on this Police Shooting!. A Police Shooting!, do these two dumb broads have any idea what they are doing. Day and Walsh wanted to know how many holes were in the dog and had the dog taken to Western Ave. to be checked out at Animal Control. These two dumb broads wanted and thought the gun should be inventoried and Crime Lab personnel sent out. Thanks to the Detectives, it was stopped. Come on Cline are you reading the reports Day and Walsh are submitting.

Start having outside consultants administer standardized intelligence tests to the entire department.

With a median score of 100, isolate and identify all members who score below 80 or above 120.

If an exempt scores low, take appropriate action. If a patrol officer scores above 120, show cause why said officer should not be promoted.

IQ 80 is the cut-off for a MORON. How many current bosses would fall into this category?

Off Topic

Tomorrow at 1900hrs there will be a meeting at the Beverly Arts center for those of us in Mount Greenwood who wish to voice our displeasure over the property tax rate hikes. Our taxes are effectively doubled but we have to get private funding to rebuild Mt Greenwood park because the city wont cover all of it like they do in every other neighborhood in the city. Come one come all.

Next time a parrot gets shot by the police for pecking a couple kid's heads, please send out an ADS who doesn't ask for the dics and demand a round table. Or, if a kitty gets shot by the police for kicking kitty litter in the face of two kids, again, PLEEEEZE, send the real police bosses to make the wise decisions. Who makes these people exempts anyway? God help the troops.

You are spot on with your post. It's nice to see that SOMEONE has some respect for themselves and the job. I'd like to think that most of us are better than the coppers in N.O and wouldn't run away like little girls if something big happened.

HELL NO WE AINT PREPARED!! YOU HEAR THAT MEDIA, WE AINT NO WHERE NEAR PREPARED TO GET PREPARED. LOOK AT NYPD AND LOOK AT OURS PREPAREDNESS AND TRAINING AND SKILL AND EQUIPMENT AND YOULL LAFF YUR ASSES OFF.

AND YEAH MAYBE ALL IT WAS, WAS A SIMPLE ACCIDENT LIKE THE TRAIN JUMPED THE TRACKS GOT CAUGHT UP ON ALL THAT TRASH AND SHIT THAT LITTERS THE L-TRACKS AND STARTED A FIRE THAT CREATED SMOKE THAT REALLY MADE EVACUATION NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE, MAYBE. BUT THAT EXPOSED TO ALL WHO COULD SEE (THAT INCLUDES TERRORISTS) JUST HOW "SCREWED" UP OUR RESPONSE IS TO SUCH A DISASTER.

IF I WERE A TERRORIST ID BE MAKING MY PLANS TO BRING CHICAGO TO ITS KNEES, WHICH WOULDNT BE HARD AT ALL. ALL YOU NEED IS A LITTLE MONEY, TRAINING, AND A GROUP OF MARTYERS AND YOUR ALL SET, AND HELL THEY ALREADY GOT THAT, SO YOU KNOW THEYRE GETTIN READY TO PAINT THE TOWN RED WITH OUR CITIZENS AND FIRST RESPONDERS BLOOD, THAT MEANS YOU MR & MRS POLICE OFFICER/FIREFIGHTER/PARAMEDICS.

MEDIA STOP BEING BAMBOOZLED,LED ASTRAY, HOODWINKED AND TOLD BALD FACE LIES ABOUT THE CITIES PREPAREDNESS TO DEAL WITH A TERRORISTS ATTACK. BELIEVE ME WHEN I TELL YOU "WE AINT READY!!!"

... AND YEAH I KNOW THE BAD GUY READS THIS BLOG TOO , BUT IM HOPIN AGAINST HOPE THAT THIS INCIDENT WILL MOTIVATE CITY HALL TO GET SERIOUS ABOUT PROTECTING US ALL AGAINST THE TERROR THREATS ALREADY DEEPLY ENTRENCHED IN THE CITY.

Well I am honest enough to say fuck this city and fuck the mayor. If terrorists strike Chitcago, I go home to my family.

Its not that Im a coward. Its because thats my way of fucking richie and the city back.

I used to be a hard charger. Not anymore. So go ahead and run to the terrorist site. Ill take your kids to the park for you when your gone.

Why should I risk my life for a mayor and a city that cant even train us properly let alone give us the right equipment.

But "my butt hurts" Hummerboy Huberman can spend millions on stupid cameras and what not that dont do a damn thing but make Chitcago look like it has resources that it no where near has. Cheeya I beleeves.

Becuase it's the job you willing accepted, get paid for, and are counted on to perform by your co-workers.

Time to go back to the days when deserters got shot!

Please find another job and let someone with at least an ounce of integrity, sense of duty and pride have yours.

You guys who are willing to give your life for this mayor and city are idiots.If a chemical weapon was used in down town and I was dispatched to respond, I WILL NOT!!
If I was properly trained and well equipped I would. Like one poster stated look at New York and compare them to chicago, they have a Emergency Resonse Unit,regular cars with assault weapon,helicopters, so on and so on. What does chicago have,cars with 90,000 miles with no first aid kits,shot guns,protective chemical gear,and ADS who call for a round table on a shooting of a vicious animal. You can do want you want hard charger but I'm going to make sure I'm around to take care of my family.

Proof of the cowards hired in the last 10 years.

When the City and your fellow officers would need you most, you'd turn your back and run.

I'd spit in your faces if I knew who you were.

"but we weren't properly trained! We don't have the right equipment! The politicians don't care about us" Trying to convince yourselves that you aren't cowards! Pathetic pukes.

What do you do when you ask a very high ranking exempt member of this department about the lack of terrorist attack training and equipment for the first responders and he replies,

"IT IS NOT PRACTICAL TO TRAIN INDIVIDUAL OFFICERS TO RESPOND TO A TERORIST ATTACK."

This is department policy, the city is spending the money on other things like hired trucks, iron fences, the Gay Games and Richard M. Daley Park (Millennium Park for now).

I would feel very different if I thought that the mayor or the exempts gave a damn about the officers on the street and their families.

One of the things that will happen if there is a major terrorist attack is that a large contingent (many thousand) of U.S. Military will descend on the city.

This will be of course medics, Neuclear-Bioligical-Chemical units and communications.

This will be a containment force, and they will set up a very large perimeter around Chicago's "Ground Zero".

If you are inside that perimeter, that is where you will stay, and your family will be on their own.

Every night I work, I go out into a ghetto/barrio district. There are gang bangers, and all kinds of dangerous people mixed in with the decent folk out there. I and my fellow officers risk our lives every night for each other, our families and the decent people out there. I have been trained and equipped to deal with most of what the street can throw at me and I can improvise the rest. I have confidence in my skills, my body armor, the best handguns and ammo I can get as well as a few other tools to stay safe and get the job done.

What I do not have is the tools, the training and equipment to deal with a 9/11 type attack or worse at close range. I have no confidence in the city's preparations, planning or anything regarding what will happen sooner or later. Why do we not have this, because the mayor of this city does not care about us.

Thirty of Chernobyl liquidators died on the spot, hundreds of others suffered from cancer afterwards. Almost 18,000 people, including children, died within the 20 years after the tragedy...............
Some of the 176 staff on duty that night were killed instantly; others would die later..............
keep in mind this is the loss publicly admitted to during the cold war

Military vets have a ton training in bio-chem stuff. Seems like I'm in Chem-Warfare training every other month in the National Guard. The best thing the bosses could do is find those people with that background and stay the hell out of their way.

You mean like the way they filled the new swat team out while we were all away in Iraq. Gimme a break thats what the city wants a bunch of knowledgeable coppers doing a job and not beholdened to a boss? god forbid

It's almost five years after 9/11 and only 20% of the department has little or some training on tara.... what a joke? this tells you how much the city and the brass care about the guys and gals working in blue....the officers with no clout which make up almost all the guys that work a beat car are left to fend for themselves.. great morale booster...give the city the same respect they give you.....

I'm confused. On the one hand you beef about not receiving training. On the other hand if training is provided, the trainees in large part don't pay attention, sleep, discourage class discussion, and demand an early release. Which is the real CPD. There are many problems on this job. The largest is personnel.

You shouldn't be confused. What we want and need is quality training and equipment. What we get is bullshit cobbled together from various news sources dished out by hacks whose only qualification is who they know. I went through the TARA training I learned more about what was going on thru doing research myself. Their big quality example was Martin Padilla and how the feds stopped a dirty bomb etc.... of course that was b4 the indictment of him and its complete lack of any involvment mention of a dirty bomb. I guess thats what happens when you just regurgitate what the feds feed you. LONG LIVE KING GEORGE (orwell that is)
