Looks like I'm not the only one thinking plague.

New York City rolls out the largest surprise public health drill ever.

The New York City Department of Health will be conducting a massive emergency preparedness drill at 30 facilities across the city on Friday.

They are testing the delivery of emergency medications in the event of a biological attack, such as anthrax, or other large-scale public health emergency in the city. The majority of the deliveries will take place to public school buildings.

It's the largest surprise drill in the city's history. The drill was scheduled to take place from approximately 6:30 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. The majority of participants were given no notice to better test and simulate a real emergency and response.

At least the NYC Powers That Be are THINKING about it.

Sad that I don't find that more reassuring.
