|See, this means I am invisible...|
It was held at the fire station, in one of the practice towers, there was smoke, (fake fog stuff, but still...), there was junk all over, and my friend Naomi did "blood, guts, 'n gore" on several people, so when the CERT folks checked, there was indeed injurious looking injuries.
The ones that did the rescuing did a great job, to my unpracticed eye. There were some areas that could use improvement, but all in all, they seemed to be doing well, and had a good handle on things rather quickly.
I certainly hope I will not need to deal with someone with a pencil through the face (yes, we had a mock up that made them look like that), but it gives you confidence doing something where everything isn't just a snap. I must say, I do think that it might be interesting, if we should be called out this winter, which it has been implied we might be, I am hoping that I can show myself as capable as the folks that were called out tonight rather flat-footedly.
So next time, I have been informed, I will be an obnoxious victim.
I am trying to decide if I am going up, or down in the world...
