i completely agree with sheriff moore...there needs to be a staged event, involving not only first responders, but hospitals, schools, churches, and citizens...a good suggestion might be how we as a community would react and organize for a mass tragedy such as the joplin tornado..we all need to realize that could happen here any time, as well as a "man-made" tragedy such as newtown..
