What he means is, if you leave your full name, or a name by how a lot of people know you (like mine), then your comment will more than likely stay as you aren’t “hiding” behind a name and maybe trying to stir the pot anonymously…

Why didn’t Dhfd, bethesda, or parkwood get asked to take part in the drill seeing how they would be going to the call?

Actually, they would NOT be part of an NDMS receiving point event, except perhaps to provide a mutual aid ambulance. This drill was not a test of our ability to round up lots of ambulances—it was about ground operations, patient tracking, command and control.

Hope that answers your question>

We could possibly start a new thread in the watch desk for ones that would like to remain anonymous
