Wassup with Wackenhut


SUMMARY:

Bankruptcy, front companies, gov. contacts & the Elite : Anthrax and public fear for profit.



I don't know much about Wackenhut industries, but I know they
aren't up to good. Mostly if this school and its president were invited
to speak in front of the committee seated by Ohio senator
Voinivich. The Voinivich family has been the primary contractor for
Ohio prisons, and been involved in many scandals resulting from it.
(we make the laws than build more prisons)

Being an Ohioan and one convinced of government involvement in
911 I thought this may help the inquiry.

The school was started only 4 months before attack and I find that
relevant. They didn't waste time,they did
A FULL ON ANTHRAX bioterrorism drill on MAY 9.2001.

THIS IS THE SITE FOR THE COLLEGE.

University of Findlay President Kenneth Zirkle spoke
in front of a hearing this week, he was introduced by
Sen. Voinivich(R) in which he boasted of being
the only College of its type. He also stated that they
have trained 50,000 people,(the good old first
responders)," we have boxcars" he said two or three
times, "have everything you need for terrorism
training."


Zirkle became the President in 1989,and in August
1999 the TOLEDO BLADE said "the college had begun
nothing short of a rebirth" ...and that they just
added a major in "hazardous waste management" was
added. As well as that the "staff multiplied, and full
and part-time student enrollment doubled from about
2,075 in 1989 to more than 4,100. Z quotes the success
to" ...updating brochures, and looking for new ways to
recruit students."

From the University newsletter.

“The thing is that people have driven by here hundreds
of times and have no idea what happens here,”said
Harold Huffman.

The University of Findlay is offering a program in
which local teachers can learn about
the fields and, in turn, present that information to
their students... teachers taking part
in an in-service program at the University’s (ERTC)
Emergency Response Training Center on Ohio 12. The
five-acre facility is located just inside the city
limits and is positioned between Bright Road and
Hancock County Road 236. From the road, drivers can
see a few rail cars and some tanker cars and trucks,
but the facility is filled with many other simulations
that help those in the environmental management
field stay abreast of the latest in training.

Dan Hehr, assistant director of the ERTC and an
associate professor at the University, said the ERTC
has been in existence for about 12 years.“Our focus
here is emergency response for chemical spills,” he
explained. “We train about 4,000 people a year. There
is nothing else like this east of the Mississippi.”
Hehr said having the teachers come through is an
important step in informing the youth about the
numbers of career opportunities that are out there.

IT Group (Francis J. Harvey,acting president and
chief executive officer ) IS BANKRUPT !

January 17th, 2002A new owner of the IT Group looms on
the horizon, once a bankruptcy court approves.A new
owner of the IT Group looms on the horizon, once a
bankruptcy court approves. The Shaw Group, based in
Baton Rouge, La., has agreed to purchase
"substantially all" of IT, the two companies announced
Wednesday. The transaction is expected to be done
before the end of the first quarter. Included in the
proposed sale would be IT's facility in Findlay at
16406 U.S. 224 East, which has about 306 workers. For
local IT personnel, the proposed sale would mark the
second time in less than four years that they would
have a new owner. IT Group acquired the former OHM
Corp. in 1998.
http://www.thecourier.com/issues/2002/Jan/011702.htm

OHM's roots began in August 1969, when Robert Kirk and
his sons, William, Richard, James and Joseph, formed
Kirk Brothers Inc., a general contracting company
which specialized in water-sewage treatment work
throughout Ohio.

The company remained in this field until 1972 when
Congress empowered the U.S. Coast Guard to clean up
oil spills. The Kirk family saw promise in that work
and formed Ohio Hygienic as a supplement to its
original company.

In 1976, the transition to the oil and hazardous
material containment and cleanup field was completed
when Ohio Hygienic became O.H. Materials.

In 1986, O.H. Materials and New Jersey-based
Environmental Testing and Certification Corp. merged,
operating independently as subsidiaries of
Environmental Treatment and Technologies Corp. (ETTC).


The merger was significant because the once
privately-held O.H. Materials became part of a
publicly-traded company. Three years later, ETTC
changed its name to OHM Corp.

In early 1995, H. Wayne Huizenga gave a boost to the
company when he and the Huizenga
Family Foundation purchased 1 million shares.

The Shaw Group, founded in 1987, provides piping
systems and engineering, procurement and construction
services to the power generation industry.

Fostoria is laboratory for anthrax education, drill

A firefighter in haz-mat gear simulates the decontamination of Roppe Rubber
employee Pete Duque, who ‘found’ the box that may contain ‘anthrax.’
(THE BLADE/DIANE HIRES)

BY LUKE SHOCKMAN
BLADE STAFF WRITER

FOSTORIA - James Fenn sat in the basement of Fostoria Community Hospital,
a cup of coffee to his right and a box of anthrax to his left.

The coffee was real; the anthrax was not.

Mr. Fenn, a nurse and researcher at Toledo Hospital, was one of dozens
of people taking part in a bioterrorism drill yesterday. Authorities simulated
the release of anthrax into the offices of the Roppe Rubber plant in Fostoria.

Anthrax is a deadly bacteria that can kill 90 percent or more of the people it
infects.

It’s one of dozens of lethal viruses or bacteria that terrorists could someday
use against the United States.

It was up to Mr. Fenn to construct a fake "dispersal device" and put it in the
plant for employees there to "discover."

Authorities are accustomed to preparing for natural disasters and the release
of chemicals, either by terrorists or accidentally, but they are only just beginning
to learn how to prepare for bioterrorist attacks.

That’s why officials in Fostoria, including the Fostoria fire department, Fostoria
Community Hospital, and ProMedica Health System, which owns the hospital,
held their first bioterrorism drill - one of the first of its kind in northwest Ohio.

The drill started in the hospital emergency room, where people pretended to
report flu-like symptoms to hospital personnel.

Dr. Martin Pontasch, director of the hospital emergency room, consulted a
newly written bioterrorism manual prepared by Dr. Paul Rega, a Toledo Hospital
emergency room physician.

In the drill, Dr. Pontasch and his staff discovered that all of the patients were
coming from the Roppe Rubber plant and began suspecting an anthrax attack
after reviewing Dr. Rega’s manual.

"We have a situation down here," said Amy Preble, director of patient care
services for the hospital. "We could be looking at mass casualties here."

Dr. Pontasch decided to announce a "Code Yellow," and repeated announcements
of the code were made over the intercom. The code signifies a situation in which
mass casualties are expected.

At the plant, Fostoria firefighters donned protective clothing, searched the building,
found Mr. Fenn’s device, and began decontaminating workers.

Patients then began showing up at the hospital, where Dr. Pontasch began placing
them into priorities ranging from the "worried-well" - those probably not infected - to
the truly sick.

Maumee fire Chief Donald McConnaughy was observing the drill and decided to volunteer
as a patient.

Mr. McConnaughy, coughing and wheezing like a heavy smoker, stumbled toward Dr.
Pontasch and his staff.

He was quickly taken back to the emergency room for "treatment," which in cases of
anthrax exposure involves receiving vaccine.

The problem Fostoria Community Hospital faced, like most hospitals, is that it had little or
no anthrax vaccine available. So the hospital called Toledo Hospital, which had its medical
helicopter, ProMedica Air, fly in more supplies.

In the case of this drill, the vaccine happened to be peanut and plain M & Ms.

Dr. Pontasch said he thought yesterday’s drill went well because "we picked up little things
that need to happen" in the event of a real bioterrorist attack.

ProMedica Air ???

Jake Day declared on Wackenhut
by (:þ) 2:48pm Tue Mar 12 '02 (Modified on 6:47pm Wed Mar 13 '02)

 

This April the first the Discordian community will be serving a Jake to Wackenhut, one of the largest (in)Security Companies in the world.

This April the first the Discordian community will be serving a Jake to Wackenhut, one of the largest (in)Security Companies in the world. This is specifically in coordination with the upcoming protest over Easter, outside one of their "Detention" facilities at Woomera in the Australian desert, where refugees are kept like animals awaiting the whim of Phillip Ruddock (Minister for Cruelty). For more info: http://www.woomera2002.com/

For the uninitiated, Jake Day involves sending various forms of communique (fax, telephone, mail, email etc) of a fun, or prankish manner to the organisation concerned. The emphasis is on fun and humour rather than mere malice/agrravation.

For instance a large number of enquiries to Wackenhut asking whether they sell disposable handcuffs in designer colours or peach scented capsicum spray.
Or a swathe of applications to work there from fictitious & fanciful entities (eg Hermann Goering making an application for a security position & his qualifications).
Or a variety of amusing complaints from mythical groups (eg Citizens for Normalcy complaining that Wackenhut has not been suppressing UFO information adequately).
Whatever YOU think might be fun...
