National Level Exercise 2011 (NLE 2011)
« on: February 08, 2011, 03:54:20 PM »
FEMA has set the 2011 National Level Exercise, it will be in May this year and will be a “Tier 1” (top officials) scenario. Meaning they will be doing what Congress has mandated FEMA do, gather national and state leaders and simulate the catastrophic nature of a major earthquake in the central United States region of the New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ). The year 2011 is the bicentennial anniversary of the 1811 New Madrid earthquake, for which the NMSZ is named. NLE 2011 will be the first NLE to simulate a natural hazard.

A report about NLE 2011 from last year.

The goal of NVOAD and FEMA is to among other things, get people to think about what they would do if another 1811 earthquake happened. In other words, prep.

I’ve applied for an internship for this, but I’m told competition is tough. Fingers crossed!

On a side note, when googleing NLE 2011 I found a weird "tin foil hat" youtube vid titled "Dead birds Illuminati omen for the NLE 2011 NMSZ planned earthquake "
