"You know typically after an exercise we do a hot wash or a lessons learned to you know. Hey let's take a look at what we did know what are the. What are the missing pieces right so we can make it better next time. So that when you know. God forbid the real thing happens. We're ready for michael now. This is linda again. I will add in that both. The domestic preparedness program and the international preparedness. Ram both had exercises at the end of the week. They did wolf acre joint. Oliver's okay so they all get to sorta tryout what they've learned over the course of the week or however many days together corrector course on domestic preparedness large city. You can't have everyone so you would the heads of the groups were. They are And you know folks like with the mayor and city city manager or fire chitty from police chief and those from folks interesting michael into and you're spot on with the with the level of engagement from from multiple different facets can become really complex really quickly on even the simple exercises prepared as drills and exercises and real incidents generate opportunities for improvement. And things that need to be corrected or improved and that's really what it's driving at. Is that continuous improvement on continually striving for readiness and preparedness So that Said the those actual events have less impact and Can be better managed but the owner a you has a you mentioned the department of energy's emergency management issues special interest group that you might say a long standing project that we rain here at a year for years and one of the products from a that project was the department of energy's exercise builder which was very simple tool.

"I write fiction but too often takes on the tropes of fiction seats. Narratives heroes villains. We have to have a right. Cuomo fills the sweep. He both trump in cuomo from queens. But cuomo is like the tough talking straight talking you know it has real robbie tossed to him. Trump does not and cuomo is like you're tough father-in-law giving you advice and trump is your crazy uncle so i do think that demeanor. That approach appeal to a lot of people in that moment though he was doing nothing to save lives or very little to save lives and also to the media and the media is complicit. Here i mean regular people did celebrate cuomo and enjoy cuomo but if you look at the coverage from that period is ridiculously fawning cuomo. It's appearing on the cover multiple national magazines on the cover of rolling stone using the cover of vanity fair in the new york times. He's getting salvatori coverage his aides Who played a role in the nursing home deaths which we can talk about a later. She is profiled by harpers bizarre. It really is like this. Manic of cuomo hero worship. That lasts several months. Knifing does the damage of still protecting his reputation even as he's no longer as popular as it used to be. He's coming off such a high keith. He's not yet in the gutter. Where probably normal politician would e after it'd be scandals and other problems that he countered this year we saw. We saw the press kind of openly. Make him campaign for the role of the eleven giuliani to this pandemic knew they were. They were long to slot somebody into a familiar character. Trope which was which is bizarre to watch you know. It's like they were trying to shoehorn them into something that that didn't really exist. But he definitely benefited from that. Did he did he. Not yes. absolutely no definitely there are a lot of parallels between giuliani and nine eleven Mon cova each instance. Neither man did anything at all to save. Lives in giuliani's defense. Quince dot mine eleven. He didn't move. He infamously after the world trade center bombing three against the advice of a smart people. He moved the oem headquarters into the world trade center than rendered useless very quickly nine eleven. Am office Emergency management yeah so. He moved his headquarters into the trade center after the ninety three bombing and people were like why this terrorist target. Don't do that. i don't know why he did it. Air there is a reason to go back in the press clippings on well he did also cost lives by not buying well. I guess it was christine. Todd whitman was in new york. Epa at the time epa director. But they did downplay the risks to rescue workers that it was safe to go down there and and like a day. I don't know the numbers but there. There's a significant number of people who got cancer basically from doing this. Yes so yeah pulmonary names. yeah yes. Many people suffering tense day court for dead of your front from that time. So the out to the late late steve lavigne ran mount. Sinai's world trade center workers rescue workers clinic. They said they open an entire clinic to deal with that. That's how bad it was. Yes those horrific so you know giuliani enjoy this post. Nine eleven popularity almost tries to. He tried to secure himself. A third term as mayor did not work out and then he hosted off of this offer. Long i m turned into a failed. Presidential bid made millions of dollars defended defense treated himself later on with trump. And so on it. So yes i. I think that the media hungers for narratives hungers for foils There's kind of collective yearning to build wade. Sometimes and the coverage in its seen democracy the coverage bid trump is terrible. Komo's doing a bad job too. yeah. I told people. Repeatedly throughout twenty twenty. Both of these things can be true right exactly. I'm not here. Defending donald trump's covid response. It was not good But this does not mean. Andrew cuomo is awesome end is doing incredible job. In fact he is not and subsequently his response months come would would be quite destructive. In in terms of the quiet austerity regime that he imposed on new york a drought twenty twenty and was very luckily reverse. Soon extent by the federal stimulus money that came in but that would not have happened without democratic. So cuomo there the but trump phenomenon but trump trump if you raise any criticism of a democrat as long as you're not doing and saying exactly what trump is doing and saying you get you had four again. You're foiled by that but you know what's interesting is that i feel like we saw this cynically weaponized by people in the defense. You know they use it to like cover. Give cover the democrats. But in this case i actually think it was. Obviously it functioned as giving cover. But i think that people were so like seduced by just again just language that recognize science. Even though as you pointed out he was not at taking it seriously enough and he was actually misrepresenting. What what it was by. Comparing it to the yeah. The remarkable thing with cuomo is. I'm sort of skeptical of the follow of science colt. Right though i mean. I know me to under two but but i was going to add it as my pivot from that is that cuomo did not follow the science and in fact his staffers in in in government the people making public health decisions were mostly not doctors and scientists they were his political appointees the guy heading up the vaccine response on twenty twenty twenty twenty one was larry schwarz tuesday literal political hack. Who has been komo's friend's for decades and is like working as a volunteer to oversee a coordinate backseats state so this is like a theme with cuomo where he's not even following the signs for other states like washington state which had a pretty good cove response. They were jay. Inslee was empowering scientists and doctors to speak to the public directly. One thing on right about my book is cuomo is insistent that he is the face of covert it not a public health official which is contrasted with washington state Even california public health officials are put at the forefront it cuomo Any his state his health commissioner in the state is in is in essence a flunky. Who will do anything. Cuomo says in is not an independent. Anyway i guess i meant more like he. Virtues he science virtue virtue signal..
