I wanted to share this with you. The series was mentioned to me by a friend that is also a prepper. It seems it came out in 2009, but thought it relevant as many urban and suburban preppers I know are worried about dirty bombs, especially in NYC where I am on a regular basis. This has also been a topic of conversation since the 10th anniversary of 9/11 is approaching in the next sixty days…
This is a dramatization of someone unprepared in almost every way when a dirty bomb is detonated. I think it represents a series of events which are plausible to an extent. Watch for yourself and please feel free to comment.
Thanks for posting it. It was entertaining and very well-made. I think that the series of events might occur a little faster in an actual dirty-bomb scenario, but I don’t want to bag on the series as the people that put it together did such a great job.
I agree, it was well thought out; and depending on the city, it’s population, proximity to having supplies delivered, etc, depends on how quickly it would unfold. In Post 9/11 New Yorkers were very nice to each other, there was a sense of deep community, etc. Today, I am not so sure. It seems we are back to pre‑9/11 attitude. People we are fickle, in my opinion, because we live in our own bubbles of stress, work, and life. They don’t mean to be fickle. They believe they are not, because what they remember is personal to them. However, when they wake up the next day, put on their clothes and run out the door by 6:30 to be in the office by 7:15 with their coffee and bagle, that is all that is on their minds.
My opinion, is that a dirty bomb in NYC, anyway, will be viewed as an isolated incident geographically, depending upon how it is detonated. It would be a sad day if that happened and very 9/11-esque. However, the longer term health repercussions become a greater concern. Sad to even think about.
