Evacuation What?

  • In the wake of Hurricane Harvey and now Irma, Chicagoans may be wondering: Could we evacuate during a catastrophe, and how?

    [...] State, county and city officials are constantly revising plans to empty out Chicago in the event of a disaster.

    But emptying the nation’s third largest city – with 2.7 million people — presents significant challenges.

    “There will always be challenges whenever you try to evacuate large scale populations,” says Alicia Tate-Nadeau, executive director of the Office of Emergency Management and Communications.
Which connected asshole said it wasn't feasible to train every CPD Officer in anti-terror protocols? Luberman? Masters Masters Masters? Cholie Williams?

Have you ever noticed those barricades straddling the expressway ramps? Ever seen one operated? Do you even know who is in charge of them? You'd think that for some low-level stuff like that, we'd at least have some idea who's in charge of them, who operates them, what they're for, in case we had to shut down an expressway to make it one-way out of the city.
Nope.

And then there are the people who would see any evacuation as.....let's just say an "opportunity," and they are from all walks of life, so make no assumptions. Are we going to get the "shoot all looters" order?

Doubtful.

So keep dreaming that there's some actual "plan" in place. Not with the current crop of morons in place.

Ok lets figure this out................. for the eclipse ( and I know that not all were sympathetic) it was a 64 mile wide stretch of Illinois. 500000 people went down there. and ot all of them came back north, many went back to the SW (Texas, Louisana etc)

There were NO TROOPERS in the area, no local LEO's to direct traffic. I 57 was a parking lot from Vienna to Champaign.. US and State routes were jammed to the gills...6 hours to go 200 miles for something that was known for at least 50 years. There is no way that his fucked up state could move that many people in so short of time..................

It was then Area 4 Deputy Chief Charlie Williams. This was at a staff meeting at the old 10th District Station on afternoon of March 17th 2003. This was in response to an inquiry that our front line troops has not received any training or equipment on how to respond to a 9-11 type of attack. He then said we should just listen to the radio for instructions and disdainfully snapped, "Next question. Next intelligent question."

This is the kind of leadership we had then and nothing much has changed.

Now he will qualify for his second pension from Street and Sanitation.

The democrats are already evacuating the city. They are doing it with taxes. I'm case of emergency, all they would have to do is call a council meeting and pass a 'temporary' tax hike.

No, you have a plan.

It was made by the same connected Democrat Machine slimeballs that do all those other useless studies.

It was done after September 11, 2001, and was completed for a Federal FEMA requirement. Then the study was put on a shelf in the Emergency Operation Center and promptly forgotten.

Just like the plan for New Orleans. Ask Ray Nagin about that. You can mail him a letter at the Federal Prison in Texas. No, unfortunately, he is not serving time for manslaughter from the botched Katrina Fiasco. Even though he and Governor Blanco fucked up and refused help from everyone competent. He was convicted on garden variety corruption like so many in Chicago and Crook County are vulnerable for.

The idiots in New Orleans are so stupid, they elected Mitch Landrieu mayor, after he failed as lieutenant governor during Katrina. Want to bet that New Orleans floods if any hurricane comes within fifty miles of it again? Ninth Ward will be a flooded disaster again.

Back to the plan. Ask anyone how they are going to evacuate the hospital next time you bring a bleeding gang banger for treatment? Do they have a plan? Do they ever drill on it? Who is in charge? Is that by position, by name, or "we gave that useless job to the fuck up we cannot fire," like too many organizations?

Will they use buses to evacuate? Or will the buses sit useless in Chicago after the disaster? Just like the hundreds that flooded in New Orleans.
Where do the hospital patients go? Primary? Alternate?

Does your district have any responsibilities in assisting the hospital evacuation? Or the nursing homes in the district? Can anyone in the district even say yes or no about that?

What about the public schools?
Private and Parochial schools?
Daycare facilities?

Where do they go? How do they get there? What are the CPD Duties to support their safe evacuation?

Here is a real, simple question. Where will your police district commander evacuate to? Do you report there? Or do you report to a different district based on where you live? Do you report to the closest police district in an emergency? What is your route to avoid interfering with the evacuation routes?

Yep, that is their plan. Failure. Complete and total failure. Tiny Dancer, Alley Rahma and the Fifty Alderthieves better pray they never have to execute any of the plans.

Crook county board president toni-Bullwinkle will charge each vehicle only $25 per wheel to enter the expressways in a mass evacuation. But its only $25 per wheel, and all monies collected will go to public health and pet projects of the demo-rats.

Have you own plan and supplies to evacuate crook county.
And make sure to buy your ammo outside off "toni-bullwinkle" county, to avoid the per bullet tax she imposed.

I promise you those gates at the expressway entrances will last about 1.2 minutes in the event of a full scale evacuation. I said that the day they installed them and I continue to say it. If the government thinks they are going to keep us from fleeing this City in the event of an evacuation well then they are more stupid than even I thought.

Ever notice the huge green gates on Milwaukee just north of palatine rd. By the McDonald's ? They look almost tank proof and would block the road in both directions if closed. The project must have cost a fortune but I don't recall hearing about it in the news. I'm sure there is a plan and our ignorance of it is no accident.

Given Chicago's unique location and history, evacuating the city >should be< easier than most cities as depending on the severity of the disaster there's more options than in most places.

The first logical way most folks would think of is via the Expressways where you can go North, South, East and West.

After that there's the way you would have had to go in the years before Pres Eisenhower had the Interstates built and people mostly forgot about -- the US Highway Systems. These are most of Chicago's Major Streets and are marked like, US 12, US 7, US 45. The streets are Western Ave & Harlem Ave for North & South. Archer Ave to go Southwest. Milwaukee for Northwest, and 95th Street gets you East to Indiana and points East, US 12-20 iirc. note: I don't know much about North Side Streets so excuse any oversight.

And last but not least Chicago has 'The Rails'. Thanks to Chicago's unique history it has a Rail System like no other. Train Tracks going in every direction out of the city. And if the shit is really gonna hit the fan with some disaster, Trains will work. Metra Cars can be put on Amtrack Lines and every Amtrack car in the vicinity can be put into service for evacuation. This would be a last resort, like if North Korea got really squirrelly.

As such, If little old me can think of the above ways, I'm suuuuure that Tiny Dancer has a crack team of *Experts* that's responsible for Evacuation Planning, other Disaster Preparedness, and to coordinate with FEMA and all other Federal Agencies.

No really, I'm not kidding. I'm 'sure' he does.

The idea NOT to shoot looters is a bad one, but liberal democrats need the votes.

Shooting looters during a time of crisis should be REQUIRED by all Police and gun owners. Sacking stores for liquor, TV's and computers is not going to help anyone survive a crisis. Shoot'em! (Looters is just another two bit name for thieves.)

You know, lotta sarcastic replies being put forth here, but there is still a need to know IF there is any type of plan in place.....maybe some dumbassss reporter could do a FOIA to the Mayor's office, the CPD Supt.'s office, the OEMC........instead of always towing the liberal agenda maybe some enterprising newbie looking for some name recognition could do that. Sure would be nice to know if there is any plan for a terrorist incident, massive riot situation, massive fire or explosion, and so on.

In the meantime, my brothers and sisters in blue, have a family plan in place......you know, a What-If plan.......containing pertinent information for all of your family members........where to meet(pick one home for all family members) where to go (far away) what to take with, (meds, money, credit cards, insurance papers, birth certificates, etc etc), maps, flashlights, weapons, etc...and do it fast!......a simple fireproof lockbox from Walmart is about $50.....wouldn't hurt for all CPD to each have one in the closet for these things....

Why evacuate Chicago?
Says who?
Rahm, KimmJungFoxx and Jugghead have already allowed and caused more havoc, damage and death that neither ISIS, Taliban or Kim Jung need not waste an AirBus A330 or an atom bomb on Chicago.

Why worry ?
We have a well stocked OEMC overtime brigade that's operating on an overloaded, under powered 1990's 800 watt analog communications system.

Oh yeah - that little expressway barricade arm is going to stop some maniac driver from getting on the packed freeway. It is one f__ked up ride to take the Kennedy Harlem to 95th St at 7am and back anytime before 10pm.
But seriously, who'd go south to evacuate anyway?
I didn't notice many, if any outside of downtown, those ramp gates on the south side.
Maybe the real purpose for those ramp gates are eventual NW side only Chicago Use Tax Tolls or installed by a private entity that had a deal with Daley-Blago to sell off the city portion of expressway system, like the Skyway and how Rahm is doing with the Water Meter scam.

And as for Chollie Williams... he's has enough trouble trying to figure out how to keep Ed Burkes private drive clear of snow in case of a early season come November.

I'm going back to the early 1990's in the Garfield Ridge area. About five of us were on the job, and another five or six civilians who were outdoorsmen were part of the group. We would meet once or twice a month, card games, have a few beers and often talked about a major event and what we could do to protect ourselves and family . For about 15yrs. we had guns, ammo, food, and a way to generate electric power for our back up plan. Most of the coppers in the group are retired and moved and the group has dispersed. The point, if anyone is depending on the city to come up with a plan for a disaster you need to see a psychiatrist. If your stuck in the City, get a few friends and family member on board for a plan of action. Something that would keep the people involved going for three to four weeks. By then the troops would be arriving.

The way Rahm has allowed Private Contractors to tear up City streets at will, you'd be lucky to make it to the end of the block. As someone else said, the expressways are jammed on Saturdays, Sundays, and even Holidays. It's all because this little asshole decided that he needed to get big donations from big companies that employ hundreds and hundreds of people who don't even live in this city, and many cases the state.

Thought that the expressway gates were placed to allow the inbound lanes to become outbound as well. If anything has been shown by this post, its the sad fact that the responsible agencies such as OEMC, CCEMA, and IEMA have not even attempted to educate the public about even the basic evacuation plan. Yesterday, "Through the Decades" on SeeBS had 9-11 programming. Prominently featured was then SeeBS "reporter" Queen Carol Marin who kept gushing about how FDNY & NYPD helped her when the tower collapsed. You would never guess that the same person extolling the NYPD is now the chief cheerleader for Nothing But Crap5's anti CPD mantra while inventing the Legend of Laquan. And then she flaunts her Peabody Award as proof of her journalistic prowess. Maybe she can come down to earth and report on Chicago's lack of competent planning since she shrilly tells us how she survived 9/11 as if she was a trained first responder.
