Christopher, You are so right. For whatever reason, our local emergency manager treats the subject like classified information with a bit of "it can't happen here" and "if we have an emergency, we'll call the State" plan as the core of our EOP. Personally I want every citizen to understand and participate in planning and preparedness. For some reason, that isn't what everyone in local emergency management positions want. It wasn't in Louisiana pre 2005 and isn't here where I am now and so I am THRILLED that Mr. Fugate is setting the trend for engaging citizens and hopefully removing any territoriality mentality from Emergency Managers and professionals.
