411 from Fatty
Iowa Homeland Security Tsarina/Leftenant Governor Fatty Judge (Where's she been, celebrating the Year of the PIG?) showed who has the brains in the administration when she corrected The Big Lug's flub about 911.
Monday was the first time the Ragister reported Chester's goof...
Culver urged those seeking relief from the cold to call 911 and local police and fire dispatchers will direct them to the nearest shelter or warming center.
Tuesday the Ragister reported...Culver said residents needing shelter or facing other emergencies should call 911, despite assertions from at one least one local official that the influx of calls was jamming phone lines.
The Ragister identified the local official as...Marshalltown Police Chief Lon Walker said that practice had clogged up the emergency line in his area. "Don't call 911 for emergency shelters," he said. "I don't know where that came from, but that's not the appropriate use of 911."
It seems The Lug wasn't the only loser who recommended 911...Gov. Chet Culver and Iowa Homeland Security and Emergency Management officials have recommended that people call 911 to locate nearby emergency shelters.
This really isn't an EMERGENCY either, makes one feel sooo secure!
Fatty finally came forward and said folks should call 211 for shelter information.
State 29 picked up on this tidbit...
Chet Culver: If You're Out Of Power, Visit Our Web Sitewww.iowahomelandsecurity.org
A little over one month on the big(?) stage as Governor and Chester's flubs include a left hand swearing in ceremony, a new word LITERASLY, flooding Emergency 911 calls for information and urging folks to log onto a web site when they have no power.
It's going to be a long term!
