Feds Begin ‘Major Radiological Incident’ Drill In Austin

Zero Hedge – by Tyler Durden

Dozens of local, state, and federal agencies have begun conducting “a major radiological incident exercise” in Austin, Texas.

The Cobalt Magnet 22 exercise is led by the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration in partnership with the Austin Homeland Security and Emergency Management Office, bringing 30 agencies together in a field training exercise to combat threats of radiological attacks

Austin Emergency Management tweeted the exercise will take place in various locations around the metro area this week. “You may see people in protective clothing using equipment and/or low-flying aircraft,” the local agency said, adding “It’s just an exercise.” 

The exercise is considered regular training and will help scientists and technical experts with radiological monitoring and assessment. It began on Monday and will last through Friday.

“The City of Austin is pleased to welcome NNSA and the numerous local, state and federal agencies participating in Cobalt Magnet.

“Our goal in this exercise is to test our procedures and make improvements to ensure we’re keeping the Austin/Travis County community protected,” Juan Ortiz, Director of Austin’s Homeland Security and Emergency Management Office, told Austonia

So the bigger question … WHY is the government preparing for a dirty bomb or radiological dispersal device attack on a city now?

  1. Being the fact that this was done in Austin, it doesn’t surprise me. The people there are either weird or all naive college students. OR BOTH!

  2. I tend to believe that if they light one off it will be more east due to fallout and jet stream.
    That doesn’t mean they won’t, and ya gotta practice somewhere, right?
    There are many types of radiological munitions, plus the dirty bomb thingy.
    Just a thought.
    And be ready please.

  3. “ consequence management”?
    Smells like what they are really doing is tracking the migration and strength levels of all the shit they put in the “ vaccines”.
    College town? So they were all forced to get it right? Or is it just more fear campaigning?
