City Hall is shut down this morning for an "emergency drill" and Kansas City mainstream media warned about the inconvenience but sadly didn't provide any context.

To wit . .



"It's an "active shooter" drill."

And we greatly APPRECIATE the short but sweet message.

Actually, this is smart and something that needs to be addressed. What's scarier is the secrecy that local media and politicos still operate under as they keep this information secret from the public and wait for PR/propaganda coverage to reveal their plans after the fact. Thankfully, THANKS TO KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS, we know the deal FIRST here among our gully blog community.

Developing . .

UPDATE . . . TKC TIPSTERS TOLD YOU SO . . . Downtown Kansas City undergoes active shooter training

At least they're trying to keep employees safe. That's a first at City Hall. A welcomed change.

Seriously folks look at the dollars this dog and pony show cost the tax payers just in payroll alone. Kansas City government is a farce only outdone at the Missouri State House. Where are the leaders in this state? Is there something in the water?

Active-shooter drill?

Good Lord!!! Stay the hell away from there, as frequently active-shooter drills have an eery tendency to transition into real-time actual shooting events.


Sandy Hook School Shooting
Active Shooter Drill

The official government website for the state of Connecticut ( lists the drill on their calendar;

12/14 9 AM – 4 PM FEMA L-366 Planning for the Needs of Children in Disasters

The government drill that took place on the same day of the shooting between the same hours was located down the road about 14 miles at the following location:

Location: 2800 Main Street, Bridgeport, CT9 AM – 4 PM

The goal of the course is to enable participants to improve their community’s mitigation and emergency operations plan specifically regarding the needs of children. The course will provide them with the information needed to address the unique needs of children prior to, during and following disasters. It will also provide them guidance and direction on how to form coalitions and how to become advocates for the unique needs of children in all aspects of emergency management.
After completing this course, participants will be able to:
• Articulate the importance of providing for the needs of children in disasters in your community’s current emergency management plan.
• Explain what is required to keep children safe in emergencies and why those needs are unique.
• Explain the assumptions, concept of operations, organization and assignment of responsibilities that address the unique needs of children prior to, during and following disasters.
• Explain the planning components necessary to address the unique needs of children prior to, during and following disasters
• Incorporate the unique needs of children in disasters into Emergency Operations Plans
• Identify stakeholders and organizations that can assist in preparing for the needs of children in disasters.

Wish they had an "Active Mayor" drill

Which reminds me... Kay Barnes on 9-11-2001 had the elevators SHUT DOWN UNTIL THE 29th floor was evacuated. Leaving all city staff taking crowded stairs until Kay the Shopper was safely enroute to her protected home.
Yeah lets enshrine the bitch.

Living the past lack of concern for workers and citizens I support this active shooter drill.

Too bad it's not a real active shooter. At least half of Kansas City's corruption problem would be solved.

9-11 aside , having seen many of the overweight city employees maybe taking the stairs should happen more often

To wish harm on anyone is a sick act, ass hole 1050.

Nothing like Tony's free speech zone (sic).

After patting yourself on the back, you might ask yourself, "why is knowing the nature of the drill important?"

Unless its to pander to the ass hats like 1050.

Drills, in short a morning spent fucking off doing nothing. Oh wait that's a normal morning at city hall.

11:49 = hypocrite

Finding fault with another's comment, by lecturing with a potty-mouth, is facetiously fecal.

Pleading harm on someone and foul language are different.

Cut the guy some slack. He was trying to make a "funny" and failed miserably. A harmless piss ant to be sure.

With Clair making everyone give up their tanks and military gear there will be no hope for Brush Creek. It will be lost on the first advancing assault. We need a drill there, but the EPA won't come.
