So my daughter had an earthquake drill today. She works at a zoo which made for some interesting situations. Snake bites, dart an escaped gorilla, bears without a fence, power out on the hot grass, monkeys on the loose. Lots of fun stuff. Then it gets freaky. County fire department was involved. One station had to abandon the drill because of a real gas leak elsewhere (could happen in a real event) leaving the other station to deal with it alone but the zoo wouldn't let them in because protocol says no one in or out until perimeter is secured and dangerous animals are accounted for. Don't want to let FD in and let a tiger out. They found themselves in several catch 22s like that. I.E. Need to move the gorilla but can't because no one knows if the bears are out. Can't check the bears because the gorilla might be coming out of the tranquilizer dart. She had a fun day and learned a lot, she was the snake bite victim. This week I am giving a presentation to a large church group on the mental and psychological aspects of emergency preparation. As she knows this is coming up she shared her experiences with me today in detail. The point is be prepared for the totally unexpected. Brainstorm any improbable or obscure situation which you could find yourself in.
