WTAE and the Post-Gazette clearly do not see eye to eye on matters of a disaster preparedness plan.
WTAE's article yesterday, Downtown Disaster Evacuation Plan Topic of Concern, left the reader thinking that there is some work to do:
"We have some very crude and preliminary ideas about evacuation," said Public Safety Director Michael Huss. "But there is not a Downtown evacuation plan, per se."Yet, a PG article today, City disaster preparedness praised, tells us that the head of emergency and disaster response operations for the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Glenn Cannon, was in town yesterday praising Pittsburgh for its, "outstanding level of preparedness for disasters".
"Pittsburgh's level of preparedness is outstanding," he said. "It is a model and a best practices model recognized by the Homeland Security Department."
