USAEBN members receive certification in Weapons of Mass Destruction Operations Response.
USA Emergency Broadcasting Network staff members received training from Texas A&M, on how to response to Weapons of Mass Destruction and Hazardous Material incidents, Operations Level. "with current situational developing and a attack within the United States, more likely. It was time to walk the walk, and increase our professional knowledge base to include Weapons of Mass Destruction" stated USAEBN President, Tim Howard.
The increase security alerts and intel chatter from overseas, a possible attack within the United States has promped the USAEBN and Community Readiness program to begin to develop plans on how to assist and train our listeners and follower with the latest defensive measure and shelter in place procedures that we can find. In order to do this it was only natural for our staff members take the course.
Another plus to this endeavor is that not only will we be able to talk about Weapons of Mass Destruction incidents, but our members can assist the local authorities is mitigation and recovering from any type of WMD or Hazardous Material incident that may occur.
Now a days there is all sort of untrained people out there giving out information on how to survive all types of emergencies. If you do your research, you will find these people are housewives, preachers, used car salesmen and the like, all promoting themselves as preparedness experts. Well they are not. They sit behind a computer and type out their ideas and suggestions about how to prepare. There is one group that promotes themselves as a response team and the only experience they have is that they went through a tornado. ONCE! Folks these people's advice can become dangerous if you follow it.
USAEBN is made up of professionals. People that communities rely on to help them out during a disasters. Our staff has been involved with emergencies to include 911 Attacks, Washington DC earthquakes, Hurricane Rita, Katrina, Sandy, Plus the day to day auto accidents, home fires and such. So when we explain how you should prepare we have experience and training to back us up. Training just like this.
Alot of groups out there like to talk about, what is wrong with our current government, president, political affairs. Then when a situation occurs, where are these groups? Hiding somewhere else, because they really do not care. They just shoot their mouths off to be heard. Here at USAEBN we don't shoot our mouths off, we actually do something about it. We volunteer our time and correct things that we see wrong. Well we have noticed that most Americans do not really know what to do, if we were attacked with a Weapon of Mass Destruction. How to reconize one and how to notify local authorities if they were to find one. USAEBN leads by example and get out there and finds the training required to help educate the general population.
In the coming weeks, we will take this training and develop courses that will be available on the USAEBN Prep Academy and these courses will address the weakness that we have found in the general public.Would you know what to do if you were on your way to work and found a semi trailer with a red placard on it overturn on its side? Or what if that pipeline in your nieghborhood developed a leak? Could you shelter in place until the situation was over? What supplies do you have on hand? Why can't you evacuate instead of sheltering in place?
These are the subjects that we all need to find more information about. USAEBN will be the organization that will help you understand the reasons.
During any type of disaster, relief organizations like the Red Cross and FEMA will not be able to get to you for a few days, so it is up to the individual to prepare for his family during times of crises. The need to educate the public on the basic of Disaster Preparedness is critical. It is not up to the government alone to provide this information, but local communities and business must step up to the plate and help educate the local populace. Our Motto is:
Disaster Preparedness is as Simple as A-B-C
A - Always be informed by listening to USA Emergency Broadcasting Network
B - Build a Disaster Kit ; USAEBN Marketplace has the equipment that you need
C- Create a Family Emergency Plan; Attend training offered by USAEBN
