Because Indiana is the epicenter for earthquakes
Saturday, a taxpayer funded exercise in preparedness was going on. From the always-up-to-something folks in state government:
LANSING. In an effort to practice and test its emergency mobilization capabilities, the Michigan State Police (MSP) is participating in a simulated exercise tomorrow; Saturday, April 5, 2014.
The simulated preparedness exercise will test the department’s response to an Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC) request for police officers to assist the State of Indiana with recovery operations in the aftermath of a simulated earthquake. The scenario will require the mobilization of 60 MSP personnel from across the state to the Lansing area. ..
Please note: This is not a media event but rather an advisory to the media to help prevent any public concern during the activities of this simulated exercise.
Nothing to see here.
Move along now folks.
