Last 3 days I've noticed emergency services vehicles from different counties in my local town. First it was police cars, then it was fire trucks then fire department SUVs. I can understand neighboring towns wanting to get familiar with each other for mutual aid, but most of the vehicles I've seen are 45 minutes or more from their home cities/towns.
Anybody seen something similar in their towns or am I just lucky with where I live having a fairly new high school?
Our counties have been doing he same but they are prepping to all go to Oregon. Apparently they are expecting some kind of catastrophe on the west coast very soon. They have been loading tractor trailer trucks of medical supplies and food.
Seriously? How do you know they are headed to western Oregon?
The Cascadian fault comes to mind...
ever think they are moving them supplies to a safer location?
Oregon is one of few states with no first strike targets and few tertionary targets ....
There is a lot of prep in emergency services in Oregon regarding the Cascadia Subduction Zone and the "overdue" 9.0 quake just off the coast. A lot of simulations and training happening around the state.

So I joined as a volunteer in my local area CERT and MRC. We have several drills just completed and one more next month. We generally support all the Emergency Service organizations activities. Ask around your area there are likely some loose lips who have some idea what's happening.
We have out of city ones in our county but its because the ambulance service building burned and burned up
3 ambulances. The surrounding areas were quick to donate some temporarily till they could get up and running
The building which was fairly new will be rebuilt. I guess something in one of the ambulances caused the fire.
I agree swamp. Training, conference or even a meeting. All very likely reason to numerous vehicles from other jurisdictions. I live in the largest city within a 10 county area and my town host a number of trainings, conferences or meeting that bring in first responder from a wide area.
