Thanks, Stan. That is the opinion of several other folks as well.

Rick (and Bill who was my RST director for the shift)

I know you will be collecting feedback to incorporate lesson learned during this emergency response. So before it slips my mind I am sending now. My observation last Saturday was that there was a lot of discussion on what steps the Japanese should be taking. The SAMGs are guidelines specially designed for this situation. However, it seems like people are trying to second guess and seems like no clear direction. Now either the SAMG procedures are not correct, or people are not following the response directed by the SAMGs. Really seems odd to me that the industry went to such an extent to formulate an action plan and here is a clear case for their use. But it is not happening.

Just my observation.
