Our city, Phoenix, is probably one of the more active cities in the nation when it comes to WMD preparedness.  We have a large-scale event every year involving the National Guard, police and fire department.  It’s a building block of teams working with one another in case something like this hits the valley.  Also, each Phoenix officer now has personal protective equipment in their car that they carry with them at al times.  They receive training every year and get fit tested on their gas masks once a year as well.  I always pick up something new at each WMD class I go to.  There is so much to learn, biological, radiological and nuclear.  I don’t know if an event will ever take place here, but I do want to be prepared.  It’s easy to bury our heads in the sand and say it will never happen in Phoenix but you never know.
